Notes:

The fees above apply only to direct submissions to CGC by Collector members. In the event that CGC, at its sole discretion, determines that the fair market value of a collectible is higher than the value stated by the submitter, CGC will move the collectible to the appropriate higher tier and the additional charge will be the responsibility of the submitter. For more information on determining fair market value, review the Declared Value Policy.

Collectibles submitted for regrading with their original label ARE NOT GUARANTEED TO RECEIVE THE SAME GRADE. CGC does not return Mylars, backing boards, card savers, sleeves or any other storage/shipping materials sent in with collectibles. Please do not send your collectible's Certificate of Authenticity (COA) as we cannot guarantee that it will be returned. Please note that national holidays and the Fridays before a major convention are not counted as business days for submission processing.

Membership grading credits CAN be used for On-Site Grading.
