There was so much opportunity to just walk into the CGC line with any item. Plenty of opportunity for fraud.

Further info: With CGC, they put the date and event on the yellow label. The credibility of this information is seriously in doubt.
When I have done CGC Signature Series in the past (at least several years ago), I filled out the paperwork, then CGC took the unsigned item from me and THEY got it signed. Has this changed? If so, I would agree that the new process leaves plenty of room for fraud.

Interesting your experiences are different. Definitely not the way it worked in my only experience in getting things authenticated by CGC.
Nobody took our items. It was line 1 to line 2, and no checking in between.

This was maybe three years ago...?

Last time I did it was the New York comic con... Probably around 6 years ago.

Your experience shakes my confidence in the CGC sig series service. It used to be air tight.

At some conventions, you can have a CGC representative accompany you to a signing; he will witness the item being signed, and your comic will be eligible to receive a "Signature Series" label.

Some creators who charge for their signature will charge a higher fee if the signing is witnessed.

My one experience, Stan Lee was a machine. $75 an autograph, and never looked up or conversed. I almost didn't break stride getting my two comics done.

Next it was "If you want CGC to certify Mr. Lee's signature, go to the line over there."

And yes, it was the yellow "CGC Signature Series" label they came back with.
