Price guide publisher Beckett Media has acquired CBCS, the Comic Book Certification Service. The CBCS offers comic book grading and valuation.
“We are thrilled to welcome Steve Borock and the CBCS team to the Beckett collectibles family,” said Sandeep Dua, chief executive officer of Beckett and its portfolio company, Entrust Global Group. “Our global team is fully invested in serving the comics community with the trust, integrity and fairness that Beckett has delivered to collectors for nearly 40 years.”
Beckett itself is also known for its Beckett Grading Service and Beckett Authentication Service, which focus on grading and authenticating sports cards and memorabilia.
“The entire CBCS/Beckett team is committed to growing the hobby, both in North America and internationally,” added Beckett VP of grading and authenticating Jeromy Murray. “We can’t wait to begin connecting with comics collectors and retailers at shows, conferences and hobby shops world-wide.”
“Today is an exciting step forward for CBCS and the comics community,” said CBCS co-founder and president Jerry Borock. “Infusing Beckett’s trusted brand and its talent in technology, marketing and global expansion into the market creates an even greater opportunity for CBCS to serve our great hobby.”
