CGC is introducing a CrossOver service that, for a limited time, provides a 50% discount on CGC’s grading fees for comics that were previously graded and encapsulated by another grading company.

Here's how it works:

  • Comics submitted for CrossOver must be intact in another grading company’s holder.
  • These comics will be removed by CGC from that company’s holder and graded according to CGC’s grading standards.
  • They will then be encapsulated in CGC’s state-of-the-art holder, which combines superior optics and the most advanced archival materials, making it ideal for visual display and preservation.

I got the email too, but was under the impression it was only for those dropped off at NYCC.  Or can we send in other books as well?

Submissions for CGC’s CrossOver service will initially be accepted at the CGC booth #2522 at New York Comic Con.  CrossOver service will also be made available on the CGC online order form in the coming weeks to enable collectors to mail in submissions.

This is the part that I don't understand...  does this mean no economy, value or modern?

CGC CrossOver fees are being offered at these special introductory levels:

  • Standard: $32.50
  • Express: $50
  • Walkthru: 1.5% of the Declared Value, $75 minimum

Why stop at 50 ? Get the main competition to a similar offering at 75% discount and wait for the response.

50% off (shrug)

If you still have any in other companies cases that is. 

I have 2, but they are moderns and 50% $18 for 2 books doesn't get my motor running...

I've got an Iron Man #55 I'd like to get CrossOver'd, but seeing as how the 50% only appears to be for NYCC, there's not much I can do about it.

I have many books in a paper envelope with "bird's fly by night grading service" written on top, can I get 50% off?

Does CGC sense blood in the water for the longe term survival of the other grading companies?  Is this just a really interesting new tactic?  Should I run around NYCC tomorrow grabbing CBCS slabs for hopefully a lower price then using this new service?

Yeah, I get that, but I am under the assumption that the 50% promotion is only for NYCC.
