SARASOTA, Florida (November 16, 2012) - The Certified Collectibles Group® (CCG®) has purchased Classics Incorporated, the world’s premier comic book restoration removal and pressing company. Currently located in Dallas, TX, Classics Incorporated will be moving to Sarasota, FL to become an independent member of the Certified Collectibles Group. Classics Incorporated President, Matt Nelson and the majority of his staff will be relocating to Sarasota. Beginning February 1, 2013, Classics Incorporated’s services will be offered in conjunction with those offered by Certified Guaranty Corporation (CGC®), the world’s first independent and impartial third-party comic grading service.

“We are pleased to bring Matt and his employees into the CCG family,” stated CCG CEO, Steven Eichenbaum. “Matt brings another level of expertise to work with our already stellar team. From an organizational standpoint, this is a great fit, offering our customers additional services and an easy submission process all under one roof.”

This acquisition strengthens CCG’s commitment to promoting the comic collecting hobby and enhancing the collecting experience by offering a streamlined submission experience and a suite of services that is a win/win for both collectors and dealers. Customers who wish to send books to Classics Incorporated will be able to have them transfer directly to CGC for grading – creating a synergistic relationship similar to other CCG member companies. This efficient process saves customers time, shipping and insurance expenses.

“Having someone of Matt’s caliber along with the rest of his company located here is great for the hobby and I’m excited about the prospect of working together,” said Paul Litch, CGC primary grader and restoration detection specialist. “This marks another great milestone for CGC.”

Classics Incorporated introduced pressing and restoration removal in 2001, offering groundbreaking technology and revolutionary techniques that collectors cannot find anywhere else. Matt Nelson is looking forward to the move saying, “I couldn’t be more excited. My employees and I look forward to becoming part of the CCG family and having an even greater presence in the hobby of comic collecting.”

About Certified Collectibles Group (CCG)The Certified Collectibles Group (CCG) is an umbrella organization consisting of Numismatic Guaranty Corporation of America (NGC®), the leading grading service in rare coins; Numismatic Conservation Service (NCS®), the leading coin conservation service; Paper Money Guaranty (PMG®), the leading currency certification service; Certified Guaranty Corporation (CGC®), the first independent and impartial third party grading service in comics.

Holy cr@p. I just commented on how this business approach was a conflict of interest. I don't want my grading company to be in the business of restoration or grade improvements. Impartiality goes out the window now.

Well, that's a pretty good confirmation. This is kind of sad.
