Some of the collectibles that used to be regularly found at these cons were apparently no longer there. On the other hand, some newer collectibles seem to have taken their place. At least, according to my observations.
There’s been a lot of discussion online recently about autographs and what fans should pay to obtain them. Some comics pros have begun charging a pretty penny for their autographs. And some fans aren’t all that happy about it.
Valiant Entertainment has announced a new series of variant covers that pay homage to the CGC slabbed collector’s items.
Beginning in January 2016 and continuing throughout the year, Valiant’s most high-profile new releases will debut with VALIANT x CGC REPLICA VARIANTS – the first in a fun-filled new line of shelf covers spotlighting the heroes of the Valiant Universe in printed reproductions of CGC’s trademark grading cases…and capturing their thoughts in the process! Featuring the artwork of New York Times best-selling creator and Valiant superstar Clayton Henry (ARCHER & ARMSTRONG, HARBINGER WARS), each VALIANT x CGC REPLICA VARIANT will feature an ink-on-paper reproduction of a CGC “slab” with a different Valiant hero preserved for posterity!
Press Release The Baltimore Comic-Con is excited to announce that Certified Guaranty Company, LLC (CGC) will be on-hand to conduct on-site grading at this year’s show. The show will take place the weekend of September 25-27, 2015 at the Baltimore Convention Center.
