The 2014 CGC Registry Awards
Does your collection have what it takes? We’re looking for the world’s greatest sets, and this is your opportunity to make sure yours is among them! The deadline for set registration is June 17 at 5 p.m. EST; winners will be announced July 25.
Registry Set Awards
Awards will be presented in the following categories:
- The Three Best Golden Age Sets (comics published starting with Action Comics #1 (June 1938–1959)
- The Three Best Silver Age Sets (comics published 1960–1969)
- The Three Best Bronze Age Sets (comics published 1970–1979)
- The Three Best Copper Age Sets (comics published 1980–1989)
- The Three Best Modern Age Sets (comics published 1990–present)
- The Three Best Presented Sets (sets with the best descriptive text and images)
- The One Best Magazine Set
- One Collector for Overall Achievement in Comics Collecting (based on a collector’s overall collection of Registry sets)
Take the honors in one of these categories and you’ll receive a personalized plaque, an icon of recognition next to your set’s Registry listing and a one-year Collectors Society Premium Membership.
Overall quality, balance and completion will all be important considerations — in addition to Registry score — when judging sets in competitive categories.
Additionally, collectors with the top set in each set-type category will receive an icon of recognition by his / her set in the Registry. Sets that are obscured will not be considered for awards.
To participate, just enter your set online in the Comics Registry.
Message Board Awards
The Message Boards have become a vibrant community where collectors can come together to share their passion for comic books. It is a resource created and maintained by you, the collector, and the CGC awards would not be complete without the recognition of the top contributors. This year we will award three outstanding forumites. We will consider a forumite’s complete history of posts in determining the winners. The winning forumites will receive a personalized plaque.
