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 member companies' authorized member dealers are independent
contractors and individually accountable for the market that
they make in CCG certified collectibles. CCG member companies'

IMPORTANT CONSUMER NOTIFICATION: It is important for consumers
to understand that grading and certification by member companies
of the 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 member companies 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
Notices regarding CCG member companies' Census Reports
The utilization of the CCG member companies' 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
- 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
- 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 member companies' 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.
