FAQ - What are Signature Sets and how do they differ from Competitive Sets?

The PMG Registry has two major categories of sets. Competitive sets are sets that PMG defines for the collectors, providing slots for each note included in the set, and establishing scoring for the notes to be allowed in each slot. This is a great way to collect as it allows collectors a goal to strive for, and an easy way to compare collections and highlights some truly outstanding sets. However, competitive sets are not the only way to collect. Many collectors assemble their own sets in ways as unique as their own signatures. In fact, they may be the only collector ever to assemble a set in exactly that way. So instead leaving those unique sets out of the Registry concept, we've created Signature Sets.


This area of the Registry allows our collectors to create their own set definitions.


1. They define the theme of the set.

2. They define the slots in the set (both what they have and what they're still trying to acquire).

3. They plug their own notes into the set with descriptions and pictures.



Some of the most creative collecting happens in our Signature Sets area. Signature Sets are a personal expression of what each person finds fascinating about collecting. Once a Signature Set has been created, other members can use a simple copy function so they can collect the same way. Who knows, our members could be the founders of whole new ways to collect.
