Consumers should be aware that the market in collectibles is at times volatile and involves
a due measure of risk. Only those who are aware of, and inclined to bear, the financial risk
involved with buying and selling collectibles should participate in this market. The opinions
expressed in this web page are solely statements of judgment.
CCG authorized member dealers are independent contractors and individually accountable for
the market that they make in CCG certified collectibles. CCG authorized member dealers are
also individually accountable for any other contractual undertaking they assume with their
IMPORTANT CONSUMER NOTIFICATION: It is important for consumers to understand that grading and
certification by Certified Collectibles Group does not guarantee protection from common risks
associated with a market which is potentially volatile. The degree to which collectibles
graded and certified by CCG are liquid will vary according to market conditions at a given
time for the individual collectible involved. For some collectibles there may, at times, be
no active market.
Notices regarding CCGs Census Reports
The utilization of the CCG Census Reports as a tool for assessing the population and value
of collectibles in any character or grade is unreliable. The following characteristics
inherent in the marketplace undermine the accuracy of Census Reports.
- Inexpensive collectibles, which are not commonly submitted for certification, may appear scarce in census reports, but are in fact not scarce.
- Certification services are predominantly utilized for collectibles of a higher value or for collectibles that have an appeal to collectors, and/or generally of a higher grade.
- Certified collectibles are often removed from their holders without notice to the grading service, or can be lost or destroyed. Therefore, computer tallies utilized to publish grading population reports may be misleading.
- Rarity is only one factor that must be weighed in determining the market value of a collectible.
CCG makes every effort to maintain and publish accurate information concerning its grading
and certification services but disavows any responsibility or liability regarding the
accuracy or the complete nature of the information contained in a Census Report. Certified
Collectibles Group encourages all collectors and investors to seek the counsel of a qualified
professional before making a purchase based on a census report.
