CGC White "THE FUTURE OF VALIANT" Custom Label

Post by Juki »

What do y’all think about the white "THE FUTURE OF VALIANT" Custom CGC Labels?

It costs an extra $5 bucks to get when submitting and I thought that I read that the labels were going to be limited to a number of 500 case applications when they first came out 2 or 3 years ago. Like a “limited edition” kind of thing although I can’t find any current info. However, it seems like either they have not reached the 500 limit.... or there isn’t really a limit (and I am mistaken) as new submissions seem to be still getting the white label at times.

I personally have 3 of them. 2 are on VEI books which I think look nice. However, the 3rd white label I have is on a VH1 book (Solar #10 CGC 9.6) that I bought off EBay which is kind of weird. The reason I say that is because the label has VEI characters....while the book itself contains VH1 characters. I didn’t think much about it during the purchase....but I would not have selected a white label for a VH1 book if I had submitted myself. Does this scenario bother anyone else?

If these labels are truly limited and run out.... do you think they will be more desirable and command a premium down the line?

I was also wondering if a book with a white label is “reholdered” after CGC has stopped allowing new white label submissions.... will it retain the white label status? In other words, will they print a new white label to replace the old one? And if so, is it an additional charge a second time? :hm:

It was initially supposed to be limited, which is why I slabbed a ton of them in the beginning. They lied, scrubbed the references online, and now it’s unlimited. Sometimes I regret having them as they look so inconsistent in my large collection, but they are fun and I have them for books that cam out around that time, which is kind of fun.

Haha.... I guess that is why I can’t find any information about them being limited. I was starting to believe that I actually didn’t read that they were going to be limited to 500. I hate when companies do this.

Well...it has been 3-4 years since they came out with the white label. If they were limited the labels, it would seem,would have run out and ended a long time ago. It seems that they reneged and are doing it “unlimited.”

I actually enjoy them, think they look sharp. I know that they can't be used on Signature Series (wish that label was yellow, like regular sig series), but vs the blue, I think they look really sharp, and catch the eye.

They were supposed to be limited at first, which was cool, but I love em, so I’m glad that they’re still available.
