CGC Grading On-site at Chicago Comic Con




Posted on 7/14/2011

On-site comic book grading as well as Signature Series witness authentication services will be available August 11–14 in Chicago.

CGC will offer on-site grading for comics as well as Signature Series witness authentication services at Chicago Comic Con in Rosemont, Illinois, August 11–14, 2011, at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center.

CGC will be grading on-site for all service levels. These include Modern*, Economy, Standard, Express and more! Stop by the CGC booth to submit comic books for on-site grading or to request a Signature Series witness.

On-Site certification of your comic book(s) will occur during the weekend of the show. CGC’s goal is to have your books returned to you on the day they are submitted. In the event that we get inundated with submissions, CGC will have your books back to you by the end of the show on Sunday. If we do not meet that deadline, we will ship your books out to you for free within five (5) business days. During the show, CGC will have scheduled times for when books will come back to the booth for customer pick-up. We cannot guarantee that your invoice will be in any specific time slot, but please feel free to stop by and check.

On-site Tier Pricing:

  • Modern (comics 1980–present, valued US $200 or less) — US $24
  • Economy (comics valued US $300 or less) — US $45
  • Standard (comics valued US $1,000 or less) — US $75
  • Express (comics valued US $3,000 or less) — US $125
  • WalkThru (comics any value) — min $175, max 2.5% FMV
  • Signature Series Services for on-site grading — $10 additional to grading fee (per signature)

Signature Series requests can be made for on-site grading. However, if CGC and its affiliates are unable to obtain the artist(s) signature(s) by Sunday morning, then the books will not be able to be submitted for on-site certification and will have to be shipped back to CGC’s facility for regular tiers of certification. You will be responsible for all costs associated with the grading and shipping of this comic in order for it to retain its Signature Series designation.

This show is packed with exciting artists and guests such as artist/writer/creator Michael Golden, whose work can be seen on recent covers of Iron Man, Nightwing, Demon's Regret, Hulk, Spiderman and many other titles; Mark Texeira, whose has worked on Ghost Rider, Wolverine, and Moon Night; Jim Cheung, who has worked on titles such as Avengers: Children's Crusade, Edge, New Avengers: Illuminati, and Secret Warriors and Eisner Award Winner Bill Sienkiewicz who has produced covers for a range of Marvel titles, including Rom, Dazzler, The Mighty Thor, Return of the Jedi and The Transformers, and drew the comic adaptation of Dune. Check the convention website for a full list of attending guests.

Visit our booth to get answers to any questions about the services offered by CGC. Please remember that CGC does not provide opinions or free evaluations at trade shows.

Collector Society Members — You must fill in your Collectors Society number on the submission form. We cannot add this information after your order is submitted. On-site submission forms are available online. (These forms are for on-site grading only.)

Throughout the event, CGC show representatives will also be accepting submissions for all service levels to be sent to our office in Sarasota, FL.

*Modern tier is for comic books published in 1980 to the present valued at $200 or less per book.
