All fees and maximum values are in US Dollars. If you request that your collectibles be shipped to CGC Cards in the USA for grading, fees include round trip shipping and insurance between CCG Hong Kong and CGC Cards' headquarters in Sarasota, Florida, USA.

Turnaround times are approximate and not guaranteed. If a card is not yet in the CGC Cards database, the submission may experience a longer turnaround time because CGC Cards will need to conduct proper research to add the card to its database.

Pedigree

A pedigree can be added to the certification label to indicate a card's past or present ownership. To pedigree a card to a previous owner, that collector or collection must be considered to be significant by CGC Cards and sufficient documentation must be provided to confirm the requested pedigree. You can pedigree a card to yourself, typically without providing any documentation.

CrossOver

A card in a PSA, Beckett* or SGC holder is evaluated for CGC Cards certification. The card will be removed from its holder and encapsulated by CGC Cards only if CGC Cards believes that the card will receive a grade that is the same or higher than the grade assigned by the other grading service. If CGC Cards believes the card does not meet its standards for the grade, it will be returned in its original holder and the full grading fee will still apply. Cross at Any Grade: If you would like your PSA, Beckett* or SGC-holdered card certified by CGC Cards even if CGC Cards determines that it will receive a lower grade, specify CROSS AT ANY GRADE. *CGC Cards treats Beckett BCCG encapsulated cards as raw cards. BCCG cards will be removed from their holders and crossed at any grade.
