Posted on 6/16/2022

Join CGC, CGC Trading Cards and CSG at Booth #901 in July for the most exciting collector opportunities.

Certified Guaranty Company® (CGC®), CGC Trading Cards™ and Certified Sports Guaranty® (CSG®) are thrilled to be a part of this year’s San Diego Comic-Con International, July 21-24, 2022. There will be many exciting opportunities for fans to submit collectibles for grading and get the most sought-after signatures at SDCC Booth #901.

Major signing opportunities with the biggest names in comics

At the show, CGC is hosting signings with comic world superstars, including Frank Miller, J. Scott Campbell, Marc Silvestri, Donny Cates, Ryan Ottley, Scott Snyder, Greg Capullo, Tom Taylor, Jonathan Hickman, Jimmy Palmiotti, Amanda Conner, Regie Simmons and Doug Bratton. Opportunities for remarques and multiple signatures will also be available. Keep watching CGC, CGC Trading Cards and CSG for more details!

CGC Authorized Witnesses available at SDCC

If you plan to get the signature of your favorite creator while at SDCC and then submit to receive the prestigious, yellow CGC Signature Series label, you can grab a CGC Authorized Witness at CGC Booth #4315, near Artists' Alley. Without an official CGC Authorized Witness, signatures cannot be authenticated. After the collectible has been signed in the presence of a CGC Authorized Witness, it can then be submitted to CGC for expert grading and encapsulation. Your collectible will then be mailed back to you to become a treasured part of your collection.

Preparing Submissions for the Show

All submissions must be received at Booth #901 by the end of the day on Saturday, July 23, 2022. To streamline submissions at the show, please take the following steps before arriving:
