CCG to Hire Top Video Game Experts to Launch New Grading Service

The Certified Collectibles Group® (CCG®) is seeking to hire top video game experts to lead a new division — CGC Video Games — that will be dedicated to expert and impartial video game certification.

CGC Video Games will be the latest division of Certified Guaranty Company® (CGC®), the world’s leading certification service for comic books, trading cards, magazines, concert posters and other pop culture collectibles. Since 2000, CGC has certified more than 8 million collectibles, including the Action Comics #1 that sold for a record $3.25 million and a Pokémon prototype card that realized a record $360,000. Every CGC-certified collectible is backed by a comprehensive guarantee, which provides added protection to both buyers and sellers.

The formation of CGC Video Games follows CCG’s highly successful launches of CGC Trading Cards and Certified Sports Guaranty® (CSG™) in the last year. Both services were quickly embraced by collectors who have offered high praise for their expertise, consistency and crystal-clear protective holders, as well as their use of advanced authentication and grading technology, including AI.

CGC Video Games is expected to similarly revolutionize video game collecting when it begins providing expert, impartial and tech-enabled certification services that are backed by a comprehensive guarantee. Its formation presents an incredible opportunity for the world’s top video game experts to help build a new grading service backed by a company and leadership team that have a proven track record of success in collectibles certification.

In addition to CGC, CCG includes leading grading services for coins (Numismatic Guaranty Corporation®), paper money (Paper Money Guaranty®), sports cards (Certified Sports Guaranty™), stamps (Authenticated Stamp Guaranty®) and estate items (Collectibles Authentication Guaranty®). Together, the CGC companies have certified more than 62 million collectibles with a combined fair market value approaching $50 billion.

The experts hired by CGC Video Games will combine their knowledge with CCG’s unparalleled experience, proven processes, deep resources and commitment to excellence. Highly attractive offers will be made to qualified candidates.

The ideal CGC Video Games candidates will demonstrate:

  • Comprehensive knowledge of both vintage and modern video games across all major video game manufacturers
  • Expansive expertise as it relates to video game production and condition, including video game cartridges, boxes and manuals
  • Outstanding ability to detect counterfeit and altered video games as well as the skill necessary to accurately and consistently grade games
  • Knowledge of variants within a particular video game series
  • The highest level of integrity
  • A strong desire to grow as well as train and lead other team members
  • A willingness to travel domestically and internationally as needed

CGC Video Games is expected to be based in sunny Sarasota, Florida, which has no local or state income tax. Additional benefits include career advancement opportunities; health, dental and vision insurance; a 401(k) with company match; paid vacation and more.

“As the definitive leader in the certification of pop culture-related collectibles, CGC is eager to serve the world of video games,” said Steven R. Eichenbaum, CEO of CCG. “I am ready to make compelling offers to video game experts who can help us build CGC Video Games into the market’s top choice for video game grading.”
