Default Announcing "Collectors Forensics Register" - Revolutionizing the Hobby

Hello Net54 Members,

Collectors Forensics Register is a newly created service designed specifically for the graded card hobbyist. CFR combines science with technology and applies it to the graded, encapsulated sports card to capture its forensic "microscopic expression" for permanent and public record.

Our intention is to create numerous benefits within the hobby / industry as the natural byproduct from this service. Consider the following:
  • Sellers with forensic registrations of their cards will have a decided advantage over sellers without registrations
  • Buyers of forensically registered cards will have direct forensics of the card to view on the web prior to purchase
  • Any aspect of the card (name, grading company, grading serial number, card manufacturer, etc.) can be "Googled" to see if a registration exists
  • The forensic registrations (pictures & videos) can be accessed anywhere on any computer, iphone or other smart phone
  • The registrations will deter those who may contemplate fraud, as it may be forensically uncovered, if registered by a subsequent owner
  • Fraud will also be deterred, as all registrations will be sent to their respective grading companies as a friendly service
  • Those selling cards on Internet auction services can simply post the link to the card’s web page for potential buyers to view
  • Grading companies will begin to converge on industry standards, now that their product may land literally “under the microscope”
  • The introduction of these forensic registrations will very likely create an implicit self-regulation of the hobby.

CFR wanted take this opportunity to announce itself on this bulletin board and avail itself to its members, as the Net54 community is a long established and respected one.

Important note: We are not a grading company, nor do we take a position on the quality or accuracy of the awarded grades of cards that are submitted for registration. However, our mission is to record a "point-in-time" forensic snapshot of all cards submitted for public availability on the Internet. Grading quality, accuracy and potential fraud will be exposed as a natural byproduct of the registration process as it serves the hobby's most educated judges -- the hobbyists themselves.

For more information, please feel free to visit our web site at:

www.CFReg.com. You may also contact us from our web site or e-mail us directly at info@cfreg.com

Thanks to all board members for your time and a special thanks to Leon for opening the door to CFR as we begin our journey !

Because of the money involved with registry collectors, I certainly can understand why a service like this is being offered. But for all of the years we've joked about slabbing the slabs, guess that time has come... sorta of.

Thank you Jon, for your good memory. I caught a bit of grief over the concept of slabbing a slab, when I mentioned it years ago... I don't doubt they'll make a go of it. Difficult for me to believe it, though.

I have a 1909 Obak Chick Gandil that has lived under a cloud of suspicion for an unsolved murder since 1953. It will be good to finally know one way or the other.
