What will you certify?

In a nutshell…anything! If it can be signed, it can be certified. We offer CGC grading as well as our patented Certificates of Authenticity! Big or small, we certify it all! We’ve certified some very unique items and would love the opportunity to add your collectibles to that list!

We realize, that when it comes to certification companies, you have many choices. Alpha Omega was founded BY collectors FOR collectors. We understand how important your collectibles are to you and how you need a service that you can trust. Our promise to you is to deliver THE best customer experience you have ever had…period!

Certificate costs vary depending on the size and value of the item being certified. CGC, CSG and CSA grading varies depending on the year and value of the book/magazine/card/toy. Please see our Pricing Tab for more details.

A Certificate of Authenticity can only be obtained for any item that is signed at an event we are attending.

If a book is signed without a CGC representative present, it will receive a Qualified label (green), and will receive a qualified grade. CSA item can be verified at an additional costs

The turn-around time for a Certificate of Authenticity at a convention is normally less than 5 minutes. You have better things to do than wait in line and we don’t believe in asking you to come back hours later.

CGC, CSG, and CAS grading times vary depending on a multitude of factors, but the average time for grading can be found on their website.

For a Certificate of Authenticity, simply bring your item to our booth at any event where we are in attendance. 

For CGC grading, the process differs depending on which service you desire. For standard grading (blue label), which is grading only, your book is submitted for universal grading. For CGC’s prestigious Signature Series (yellow label), your book will be signed under the direct observation of a select CGC authorized witness and then submitted for grading.

No problem! Whether it’s a COA, CGC, and CSA grading you need, just send us your item with signing criteria and we’ll be happy to take care of it for you. Please email us to work out details.
