Debunking CGC Myths

Comic book collectors want the most bang for their buck where comics are concerned! We all want to grab that “hot book” for a reasonable price! The only question is, what do you do with it after it has been acquired?

However, over the years collectors have begun to develop questions regarding CGC and grading comics as a whole. In our latest video on ComicTom101, Debunking x3 CGC Myths,we dove into the ins and out of grading, offering a deeper examination into the world of CGC.

In sitting down with CGC’s head grader Matt Nelson we got down and dirty, answering three of the biggest questions we know the comic book community has been clamoring to get answered!
