About VeeCon

The VeeFriends brand and community includes many collectibles enthusiasts from around the world, and VeeFriends has released several trading card products, including Series 1, Series 2 (Compete and Collect) and an UNO game. Fans love to open and collect these cards, and CGC Trading Cards and CSG understand the importance of keeping them protected and secure during every step of the certification process and beyond.

At VeeCon, CGC will be accepting submissions at the “Gary’s Garage Sale” marketplace. Here, attendees can submit their VeeFriends cards and other collectibles for authentication and grading to CGC representatives in person.

VeeFriends has partnered with CGC to offer VeeCon attendees the best possible pricing, starting at just $12 per card. Additionally, all submitters will receive a free one-year Associate membership (a $25 value), which includes full access to online resources, full submission privileges, free grader notes for comics (when available), 10% off at the CCG Store and a $15 CGC Trading Cards Shipping Kit voucher. Please note: This offer is for new members only and applies to cards only.
