CGC Trading Cards Improves Submission Turnaround Times

Posted on 8/8/2022

All of CGC Trading Cards' turnaround times have improved significantly due to a concerted effort to increase capacity and streamline workflow.

CGC Trading Cards™ is excited to announce that because of increased staff, turnaround times for grading have dramatically improved while never sacrificing our high standards.

Effective immediately, the turnaround time for submissions has been cut from 40 days down to only 30 days, while Economy is now at 20 days (from 25), Standard is at 10 days (from 15) and Express is at five days (from seven). CGC Trading Cards Turnaround times are the best in the industry with consistently low fees to make grading accessible for everyone.

Launched in July 2020, CGC Trading Cards has already graded and shipped more than one million cards. CGC Trading Cards now ranks as the second-largest grading service for non-sports trading cards and continues to grow rapidly. CGC Trading Cards continues to invest in the efficiency and quality of its card grading. In addition to hiring, training and an expanded workspace, CGC Trading Cards has been developing and acquiring advanced authentication and grading technology, such as proprietary AI software.

CGC Trading Cards is also investing in the hobby and delivering services that make the submitter experience better, including industry-leading digital tools.
