CGC Trading Cards and CSG Appoint COMC an Official Submission Center
Posted on 2/1/2023
CGC Trading Cards® and Certified Sports Guaranty® (CSG®) are excited to announce that Check Out My Collectibles (COMC) has been appointed an Official Submission Center. As an Official Submission Center, COMC will help collectors submit trading cards and sports cards to CGC Trading Cards and CSG for expert authentication, grading and encapsulation services.
CGC Trading Cards and CSG are part of the Certified Collectibles Group® (CCG®), the world’s leading provider of expert, impartial and value-added services for collectibles. Since 1987, the CCG companies have certified nearly 75 million collectibles, including coins, banknotes, comic books, trading cards, video games, sports cards, stamps and estate items. Because collectors and dealers trust that collectibles certified by the CCG companies are authentic and accurately graded, they sell for higher prices — a fact reflected by numerous record-breaking auction results.
COMC is the first and largest online trading and sports card vault marketplace, known for providing collectors across the nation with a wide selection of sports and trading cards, full-service consignment services, and exceptional customer service. The organization's online storefront has grown exponentially since its inception in 2006, growing from a “garage startup” to one of the biggest online buying and selling platforms for collectors.
“Since introducing COMC, we’ve endeavored to give collectors the most enjoyable online platform to buy, sell, trade and track their collections,” said Tim Getsch, founder and CEO of COMC. “As an Official Submission Center with CGC Trading Cards and CSG, we can further provide support to our growing consumer base by giving them access to professional authentication and grading services to help them feel confident in their collections.”
CGC Trading Cards, a division of Certified Guaranty Company® (CGC®) that is devoted to trading card grading, began accepting submissions in 2020 and has already graded over 2 million trading cards, including many impressive cards such as a Pokémon Illustrator that realized $672,000 at auction. CGC Trading Cards has received media attention and community praise for its expert grading, advanced certification process and best-in-class holder. Learn more at CGCcards.com.
CSG graded its 1 millionth sports card in July 2022, just one year after launch, achieving the milestone faster than any third-party card grading service. Collectors count on CSG’s world-class experts and advanced technology to properly authenticate, grade and protect their cards with the industry’s best holder and label. Like CGC Trading Cards, the value of CSG’s services has been reflected in prices realized, such as a CSG-graded Mickey Mantle card that realized over $1 million at auction.

“COMC is an invaluable resource for collectors looking to expand their collections,” said Steven R. Eichenbaum, CEO of the Certified Collectibles Group. “We’re thrilled to work with them to bring our efficient certification services to more collectors across the nation.”
