  1. You can do the add-on autograph service to any card that we grade that has manufacturer’s certified (“pack pulled”) autographs. Yes, you can do a one card submission if you would like. The Bulk tier is the only service tier that has a minimum card requirement(50 cards).
  2. The 1952 Topps card is associated with an elite level of collecting. Certified Sports Guaranty® (CSG™) has certified an example of one of the most valuable baseball cards of all time, a 1952 Topps #311 Mickey Mantle. Collectors view this Mantle card as royalty, standing at the pinnacle of the baseball card world. READ MORE

  4. @shannycjs At the moment, we do not have any authorized CSG dealers in the UK. You can see our current list of authorized dealers and official CSG submission centers here
  5. @rthodges I appreciate the feedback. I will forward your thoughts on to our CSG management for their review and consideration.
  6. @Kon_Jelly Yes, this card should have been labeled with the Image Variation designation. You can send it in under the Mechanical Error service and it will get fixed.
  7. @jdmtdcollectorA submitter can request that CSG print “Authentic” in the grade box instead of a numeric grade as long as the card is authentic and not altered. The Authentic designation will also be used if a card is below the minimum size requirements.
  8. @Puppydog914 Ok, so they would have been designated SU Service Unavailable and "Ineligible Type" would be the reason the graders gave. You shouldn't have been charged for those so if you were then contact customer service to get that resolved for you.
  9. @Puppydog914 Did the 1965 Topps Football cards get the SU "Service Unavailable" designation? If so, then you shouldn't have been charged for those as CSG does not charge the grading fee for Service Unavailable. If you were charged then you will need to reach out to CSG Customer Service at 1-888-274-4723 and ask to speak with Accounting.
  10. @Puppydog914 The 1965 Topps Football Cards also known as "Tall Boys" have dimensions of 2 1/2" x 4 11/16" which is beyond the current specs that CSG grades. CSG currently grades cards that measure 2-5/8" x 3-3/4" or less. For more information on "Cards We Grade" CLICK HERE
  11. @Rory RipsWere you given a submission #? If so, send me a DM with your customer # and submission # and I will reach out to customer service for an update. Thank you.
  12. @eshow3907 Thank you for reaching out to us. In response to your inquiry: CSG has developed a proprietary algorithm to determine a card’s final grade based on its sub-grades. While we can’t reveal how we arrive at a final grade and sub-grades for a specific card, we can share some guidelines. First, it is important to note that the final grade is not simply an average of the sub-grades. Rather, it is based on numerous rules that are built into CSG’s proprietary systems and grading process.
  13. The countdown to the 2022 Winter Olympics begins with these two CSG Pristine 10 cards. Chloe Kim was already a snowboarding superstar when she was selected at the age of 17 to compete in the 2018 Winter Olympic Games. Living up to her reputation, she dominated at the games, earning the US two gold medals and earning herself the title “Queen of Snowboarding.” As the 2022 Winter Games approach, Kim’s return to the Olympic halfpipe is anticipated to be a highlight of the games. Certified Sports Guaranty® (CSG™) recently certified two cards featuring Chloe Kim from the 2018 Topps US Winter Olympics set. A #USA-33 Chloe Kim Bronze was graded CSG 10 and a #US-36 Chloe Kim was graded CSG 10. READ MORE

  15. A card celebrating the standout Chargers quarterback looks phenomenal in CSG’s newest holder. In modern sports card collecting, one of the most anticipated releases is the Panini National Treasures Football set. The set is popular with collectors due to the large quantity of autographed and memorabilia cards it contains. As patch cards and booklets have grown in popularity, the National Treasures set seeks to push the envelope with each new release. READ MORE
  16. @ShockmasterWe are glad that you are enjoying the registry!
  17. I checked and we will grade these paintball cards. Just make sure they are within the dimensions of 2-5/8" x 3-3/4" or less.
  18. Join CSG November 19-21 for another opportunity to submit sports cards for grading and grab some CSG swag! Calling all sports cards enthusiasts!

  19. The first set to be entered into the CSG Registry is an Anthony Edwards player set by nesio213. The CSG Registry was released on September 22 and, within hours, there were 170 sets created, 2,600 cards added and 230 unique card owners. We would like to acknowledge Nardone72 for adding the first CSG-certified sports card and nesio213 for creating the first CSG Registry Set (an Anthony Edwards player set). We appreciate your support!

  20. The coveted cards from the early 1950s display the artistry of early Topps designs. Certified Sports Guaranty® (CSG™) was honored to grade two sought-after baseball cards that reveal the wide variety of factors that can set a card apart as valuable and draw the interest of collectors: a 1954 Topps #128 Hank Aaron graded CSG 5.5 and a 1953 Topps #220 Satchel Paige graded CSG 5 with sub-grades of 9 for Centering, 7 for Corners, 4.5 for Edges and 6 for Surface.

  21. Are you referring to the numbers under the grading scores (See attached photo)? If so, those are not counts. They are points that have been assigned based on the particular card, its rarity, value and the grade. Top sets are eligible for prizes and recognition amongst other collectors. The registry allows you to showcase your collection as well as to see the collections of others. You would need to create a set under one of the established sets in the registry or you can request to have one added if you do not see it listed in the registry. You can make set requests here
  22. CSG has not released a Pop Report yet. One is in the works, but please note that CSG must gather enough data before launching the report as we do not want to skew any data. The CSG Registry was recently launched and the Pop Report will be implemented in the next few months. Thank you for your inquiry.
  23. Unfortunately, we are not currently grading cards that large. CSG currently grades cards that measure 2-5/8" x 3-3/4" or less. The 1964 Topps Giant Baseball Cards measure 3-1/8" x 5-1/4."
  24. @Tin Lizzy On the Online Submission Form, choose the Bulk tier option along with the Sub-Grades Add-On and then hit ADD CARDS. Once you have added all of your cards that you want sub-grades on then hit REVIEW CART. When you are on the Review Cart screen, hit the ADD ANOTHER SERVICE button and you will be taken back to the tier screen. From there you can choose the Bulk tier again and hit ADD CARDS. When you get to the Add Cards screen, make sure you select the Autograph check box for each card that you want to add that grading option to. When you are finished adding all of the autograph cards you can hit the Review Cart button again. You just need to make sure that the total number of cards is a minimum of 50. The 50 cards can be mixed between ones with sub-grades and ones with the autograph grading option. Please Note, these are considered different services and it will cause the cards to be split into two invoices and will be shipped back to you separately.
  25. List your CSG-certified cards on StarStock’s collector-friendly marketplace. Certified Sports Guaranty® (CSG™) is excited to share that CSG-certified sports cards are now eligible to be listed on the StarStock marketplace. To celebrate the launch, StarStock is offering a $2 site credit per CSG-graded card submitted, for submissions postmarked during the month of October 2021. READ MORE
