CSG Improves Submission Turnaround Times

Posted on 8/8/2022

All of CSG's turnaround times have improved significantly due to a concerted effort to increase capacity and streamline workflow.

Certified Sports Guaranty® (CSG®) is excited to announce turnaround times for grading are even better! We have added staff, enhanced technologies and streamlined workflows to dramatically improve turnaround times while never sacrificing our high standards.

Effective August 8, 2022, the turnaround time for Bulk submissions has been cut from 40 days down to only 30 days, while Economy is now at 20 days (down from 25), Standard is at 10 days (down from 15) and Express is at 5 days (down from 7). CSG turnaround times are the best in the industry with consistently low fees to make grading accessible for everyone.
