CGC's New SignatureSeries Service
Posted: 5/15/2001 by CGC
CGC is pleased to announce a new service called the CGC Signature Series. Finally, the comic book hobby will have a way of knowing that the signature on a comic book they purchase is a legitimate signature of their favorite professional and not a forgery.
Before this, a collector would buy a signed comic book
and get a piece of paper, called a "certificate
of authenticity" stating when and where the comic
book was signed and who signed it. Unfortunately, there
is no way to know if another comic with a forged signature
was given to them with that piece of paper.
The CGC Signature Series offers an excellent way to
authenticate an artists or writers signature
and prevent the buyer from unknowingly purchasing a
forgery. The comic book will be signed by the artist
or writer and, along with the correct, corresponding
documentation to ensure authenticity, sent directly
to CGC for certification. That comic book will get the
same impartial, expert, third party grading you expect
from CGC, but it will also be given our new yellow label
stating who signed the comic book, the date it was signed
and then put in our state-of-the-art CGC tamper evident
holder. To kick this great new service off, CGC will
have one hundred Tomb Raider #1s from the Top
Cow Collection signed by Andy Park. This will be just
in time to coincide with the new Tomb Raider movie this
June from paramount pictures starring Angelina Jolie.
After that, the next certified CGC Signature Series
comic book will be Legend Of The Sage #1 from Chaos!
If you are a store owner, convention promoter, publisher,
or comic book artist/writer and would like to be a part
