CGC Celebrity Signature Series for Autographed Photos…now available at Wizard World Chicago!
CGC, the leader in professional comic book, magazine and photograph certification, pioneered witnessed signature authentication when it introduced CGC Signature Series – a comic certification service that assures signatures are 100% authentic. Now, CGC is introducing the same top level of authentication to celebrity autographs for photos. To achieve this, all photos eligible for this program are signed in the presence of a CGC representative and immediately submitted for certification.
Once at CGC, every photo is encapsulated in a tamper-evident holder with the prestigious CGC Signature Series label indicating who signed the photo and the date it was signed. The large format label also includes important information about the signer and an image description, and at some tradeshows on-site encapsulation is offered. (CGC will be encapsulating witnessed photos on-site in Chicago)
The CGC photograph holder is made of heavy gauge archival material that protects the collectible by serving as a barrier against liquids, gasses, and improper handling. It is completely transparent to allow maximum visibility for years to come. CGC also assigns a unique serial number to every certified photograph for absolute security.
