CGC employs a 10-point grading scale for lobby cards and mini window cards that is based on the industry standard used for comics and magazines, and was pioneered by CGC in 1999.
Known throughout the hobby as the world’s most experienced and accurate third-party grading service, CGC has established itself over the last 13 years as the premier place to have your comics, magazines, photos and lobby cards certified.
CGC’s lobby card encasement is a sealed and tamper-evident holder of a heavy gauge archival plastic with binder holes. The fully transparent front and back allows complete viewing of the card and protects from any improper handling or soiling. If an owner wants to remove the card from the holder, they can simply cut the holder open and remove the card — although that would nullify the grading.
