CGC is excited to release a new label for pedigree comics! Five new collections have also been added to the list of CGC recognized pedigrees. One of these new additions, the Murphy Anderson collection, will display the new label and be sold by Heritage Auctions on July 28th.
From email announcement
Certified Guaranty Company® (CGC®) has released a new Pedigree Certification Label. This new black and white label is a way to differentiate exceptional comic book collections known as pedigrees, and will display "CGC Universal Pedigree" in place of "CGC Universal Grade". Only pedigrees that qualify for a Universal grade will receive the new label.
These new labels will be applied to books submitted as a CGC recognized pedigree through the online submission form starting on July 12th, and first available for show submissions at San Diego Comic Con on July 17th.
A new pedigree is considered when a collection of vintage books in high grade condition is introduced to the collectors market by the original owner. Many pedigree collections were recognized and accepted by the hobby before CGC came into existence.
CGC is also excited to add five new collections to the list of recognized pedigrees. This brings the total number to 59 pedigrees, all of which will be featured on the CGC pedigree site page next week.
Are the examples above supposed to impress us? Some crappy Bronze Superman comics? Is that the best these 5 new collections have to offer? (Yes I saw the Hit book ) The marketing department has their head up their ass.
