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 book is higher than the value stated by the submitter, CGC will move the comic book 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.

Comics submitted for Recertification with their original label ARE NOT GUARANTEED TO RECEIVE THE SAME GRADE. Please remember that CGC does not return Mylars or backing boards sent in with comic books. Please do not send in your comic’s COA (Certificates of Authenticity) as we cannot guarantee they will be returned. Please note that National Holiday and the Fridays before a major convention are not counted as business days for submission processing.
