Video game collectors, it’s time to power up! Card collectors, it’s time to step up to the plate! Coin collectors, it’s time to shine! Collectors everywhere, it’s time to get excited!

We strongly believe that graded items will play an important role in the future of collecting. To promote this, we’re teaming up with leaders in the industry to provide you with the most information and resources possible to streamline your collecting experience.

One of those companies is the Certified Collectibles Group (CCG). CCG states that they are the world’s leading provider of expert, impartial and tech-enabled services that add value and liquidity to collectibles. These services include authentication, grading, encapsulation and more. Since 1987, the CCG companies have certified nearly 75 million coins, banknotes, comic books, trading cards, sports cards, video games, stamps, estate items and the list continues to grow.

Among the CCG companies is Certified Guaranty Company (CGC), which was founded in 2000 in Sarasota, Florida, as the first ever independent, third-party grading service for comic books. In the years since, CGC has graded more than 10 million comics.

CGC is one of the leaders when it comes to comic book certification, and the company has expanded into trading cards, video games and more!

Another CCG company is Numismatic Guaranty Company (NGC). NGC is the world’s largest and most trusted third-party grading service for coins, tokens and medals. As the first CCG company, in business for more than 35 years, NGC has graded more than 55 million coins.

And soon you’ll find collectibles graded by CGC and NGC on hobbyDB, as we push to add more options when it comes to adding graded items to your collection. That means a wider range of collectibles, instead of only the likes of Funko.

With hobbyDB and CCG, you’ll begin to see more price points on graded items found within the hobbyDB database.

Why is grading important? It isn’t just cool-looking to have a graded item. There are many reasons to have your most cherished items given the professional treatment:

  • Authentication gives you peace of mind that you own a genuine collectible
  • Grading by a respected independent and impartial team of experts makes your collectibles easier to sell when needed
  • Encapsulation in crystal-clear holders makes it easier to display and preserve your collectibles
  • Certification adds value to your collection
