Parameters Modified for Defects Listed on CGC Labels

Posted on 5/25/2022

 

Because CGC members now have free access to Grader Notes, not as many defects will be listed on the certification label.

 

Based on feedback from prominent members of the collecting community, Certified Guaranty Company® (CGC®) is implementing a change that will reduce the number of defects that are identified on the comic book label.

 

 

Traditionally, certain defects were listed on the CGC label if they were present on a certified comic book, which were also recorded in the comic book’s Grader Notes. Because CGC members now have free access to Grader Notes, this redundancy is being eliminated from the label for the presence of the following defects:

 

Stickers

Siamese pages

Punch holes

Staples added after manufacturing

Staples removed

Detachments

Fully split spine

Tape

Significant missing parts from the cover

Lamination

Miscuts

Puzzles or coupons filled out

CGC will continue to identify on the label any significant missing pieces, pages, wraps or inserts from the interior of a comic. Each comic book’s grade will reflect all missing parts, and those missing parts will be recorded in the Grader Notes.

 

CGC is discontinuing the use of the term “incomplete” on its label, as well as the terms “affects story” and “does not affect story” when parts are missing from the interior of a comic.

 

The CGC label will continue to display restoration, conservation and qualifiers as we have in the past, including married parts, color copies, wrong parts, coverless comics, individual wraps and pages, multiple covers, additional inserts and unverified signatures on the cover.

You all thought we would get more QC without cutting something time consuming out of the picture?

 

xD

The line, "you didn't think it would be that easy, did you?" Comes to mind 😂

all I could think of was:

My Avengers #1 CGC 0.5 which is still "complete!" and signed yellow label.

I mean a lot of the 0.5's are that grade because they're NOT COMPLETE, so if I was ever to part with it, that was to be my selling point....

idk seems kind of moot now (shrug)
