CCG Seeks Top Experts in VHS Tapes to Press Play on New Grading Service

Posted on 5/9/2022

Ready for the playback? If you’re an expert in VHS tapes, CCG wants to hear from you!

The Certified Collectibles Group® (CCG®) wants to hear from and potentially hire top VHS experts for a new division dedicated to the professional authentication, grading and encapsulation of VHS tapes. This VHS grading division will be part of Certified Guaranty Company® (CGC®), the world’s leading third-party grading service for pop culture collectibles, including comic books, trading cards, magazines, concert posters and more.

The formation of a new division for VHS tapes follows CGC’s highly successful launch of CGC Trading Cards™ in 2020 and the upcoming launch of CGC Video Games™ in 2022. CGC is continuing to expand its services to meet demand for professional authentication and grading across collectibles categories. Recently, CGC surpassed the milestone of 10 million collectibles certified, which includes the world’s most expensive comic book — a copy of Superman #1 graded CGC 8.0 that sold for $5.3 million.

Well-preserved VHS tapes are becoming increasingly collectible as nostalgia for the media that revolutionized at-home movie watching continues to grow. Children of the 1980s and 90s are now collectors, and the clunky-cool VHS tape stands out as an icon of the last analog era, before cellphones, social media or streaming. Some of the most sought-after titles include Star Wars: A New Hope, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Revenge of the Nerds and classic Disney movies.

Being part of the launch of the new CGC division for VHS tapes is an incredible opportunity for the world’s top experts to help build a new grading service in a hot collectibles categories, backed by a company and leadership team that have a proven track record in collectibles certification.

VHS experts should demonstrate:

  • Comprehensive knowledge of VHS tapes
  • Expansive expertise as it relates to production and condition of VHS tapes, including all accompanying packaging and boxes
  • Outstanding ability to detect counterfeit and altered VHS tapes as well as the skill necessary to accurately and consistently grade VHS tapes
  • Knowledge of variants of VHS tapes

“Collecting VHS tapes is getting more popular by the minute, and CGC cannot wait to serve this burgeoning community with expert certification services,” said Steven R. Eichenbaum, CEO of CCG. “We are ready to talk to and potentially hire VHS experts who can help us press play in this growing market.”

In addition to CGC, CCG includes world-leading grading services for coins (Numismatic Guaranty Company™), paper money (Paper Money Guaranty®), sports cards (Certified Sports Guaranty™), stamps (Authenticated Stamp Guaranty®) and estate items (Collectibles Authentication Guaranty®). Together, the CGC companies have certified more than 70 million collectibles.
