Trading card grading questions?

4 posts in this topic

Hello,

I found all my old pokemon cards and was wondering if you guys are currently taking card grading submissions or not. 

I noticed on the website it says you're taking submissions that are "delivered the week of April 5, 2021". Does that mean you're not taking submissions now?

Also, assuming you are taking card grading submissions, I have a question about the cost. Your website says that it costs $35 per card for "Standard" grading as long as the card isn't valued over $1,000. But what if the card is valued over $1000 only if it's a 10 but not if it's a 9? How does it work if the card comes back a 10 and is worth $2000 but if it were a 9 or 8 it would only be worth $500? What would the fee for that be? Do I pay for grading up front and then you charge me more if it's worth more than $1,000?

Also, I see that the "Bulk" option allows grading for $15/card, but only if the card is worth $250 or less. What if the cards are worth more than $250? Is there no bulk option? 

I'm thinking about getting the $149 membership because it says "$150 Credit with CGC" but when I hover over the "?" it says "CGC grading credits cannot be applied to CCS services, shipping, handling or any other fees except for comic grading. Credit expires on the membership expiration date listed in your confirmation email." It says it can only be applied to comic grading. Does that mean it doesn't apply to trading card grading specifically?

Sorry for all the questions, I just wanted to get a better picture of what I'm getting into before I commit to this process.

I was told by CGC that you figure the value of a card base in its "raw", ungraded state and not to try and guess a grade for the card to get a value of a card.

There is no option for Bulk cards vauled over $250.

CGC Trading Cards is a "Teir" with in cgc so the $150 credit will goes towards your first submission. The info you see when you hover over the "?" Is incorrect according to Paul S.

Hope this helps

No, it means they are opening boxes/packages of submissions that were delivered the week of April 5.2021.  If you send in some cards now at the two cheapest levels, CGC will not open the package for a couple of months most likely.
