FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1. When do I have to pay my grading fees?
You don’t have to pay for your grading until CGC processes and grades your cards. Once CGC posts your grades, we will request payment from you for your cards on that submission. We will ship your cards back once you have paid for the grading and (if requested) any additional insurance. NOTE: Depending on the value of the cards, payment maybe requested upfront.
2. What is your processing time between when you receive my cards and when you ship them to CGC?
We do our best to process your cards within 2 business days of arrival at our processing center. We ship to CGC once a week.
3. How quickly do you ship cards back to me once they’ve been returned by CGC?
We typically ship orders back to customers within 24 hours after receiving back from CGC.
4. Can I send in cards for different service levels and/or across different card levels?
Yes – this is one of many benefits of submitting with us. We do require a submission sheet for each level of service you are using.
5. Why do I have to list out all of my cards? Why can’t I just send you everything?
We have found over the past 20+ years of submitting with CGC that this documentation protects you (the customer) and us (your service partner). When we receive your cards we are able to quickly confirm receipt of all cards listed on your spreadsheet and contact you if any cards are missing from either the spreadsheet or the shipment.
6. How do I calculate the estimated value of each card on the spreadsheet?
We recommend that you use Beckett Book Value (BV) or eBay completed listings for your card in a similar condition. For modern cards, you can use the average sale price for raw cards. In rare occasions, CGC may charge an upcharge if your declared value is far less than the graded value.
7. What is a CGC upcharge?
THIS IS RARE! Please note that at times, CGC will “upcharge” a card on an order, if the grade received pushes the card into another value tier. Customers are responsible for these upcharges on the rare occasions that they occur, typically on cards that have graded a 10 and increased in value between the time they were submitted and graded. We pass the cost of these charges directly to you in your invoice.
8. What is your process for pre-screening and does it cost extra?
We prescreen at no charge upon your request. We do not guarantee any grades, we simply judge your cards using the same standards we use for our own cards to try and eliminate any that are not (in our opinion) worthy of grading at the time of submission.
9. What do you do with my cards that are screened out and not submitted to CGC?
In general, we will return those cards back to you at no additional cost. If the number of cards or the value of the cards requires significant insurance, we will contact you to discuss any additional payment required on a case-by-case basis.
