Cryptozoic changes autograph announcement policy

By Susan Lulgjuraj | Beckett Sports Card Monthly Editor

Cryptozoic is changing the way it makes its autographs announcements.

Rather than wait until the cards are in-house, Cryptozoic will update collectors when it gets an autograph contract. Then will update as the process moves along. This will allow Cryptozoic to inform collectors and distributors what autographs will be in products earlier.

“The fact that this vital information is shared with our community sometimes only weeks before release is something we are aware has caused frustration for our distributors, dealers, and collectors,” Cryptozoic’s Miranda Charsky wrote on the company’s blog. “I think it is really important to acknowledge that we have certainly heard that feedback, and while we think the motivation for this policy was with our collectors’ interests at heart, we have decided we can best serve our customers by altering this policy moving forward.”

There is a possibility that the contracted signers will not end up in products, and Cryptozoic does not put in redemptions for cards it does not have in hand.

Here’s an update of signers Cryptozoic has provided for upcoming sets. Those marked with a (*) have a contract and those in bold are confirmed.

“There is a possibility that the contracted signers will not end up in products, and Cryptozoic does not put in redemptions for cards it does not have in hand.”

What a novel concept, something that the sports card companies should replicate.
Yes, this means some cards for some players will not be available and it would likely mean fewer products
being made, but I see that as a positive development.
