We are excited to announce that Blackstone, one of the world's largest investment firms, has acquired a majority stake in the Certified Collectibles Group.
Wow, I'm really behind the news. NGC and allied companies was bought by Blackstone/Larry Fink last year. On January 1 of this year they required a $200 a year membership fee for everyone and dealers had their accounts deactivated if they didn't ante up.
Also PCGS and their companies connected to Collector's Universe was bought by Steven Cohen's fund.
