CGC Cards Announces On-site Grading Fees for the 2023 National

Posted on 7/13/2023

Submitters can now choose “National On-site Grading” when filling out the CGC Cards online submission forms.

CGC Cards™ is thrilled to offer on-site grading at the 2023 National Sports Collectors Convention at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois, happening July 26-30, 2023. This is the first on-site grading event for the new CGC Cards, the hobby’s second-largest grading services for sports cards, TCGs and non-sports cards. With on-site grading, submitters get their cards graded and back by the end of the show, saving time and shipping fees.

Submitters are sure to be impressed by the affordable prices and fast turnaround times that CGC Cards is offering at The National. On-site grading, which includes ReHolder submissions, will be available Wednesday, July 26, through Saturday, July 29. WalkThrough submissions will still be accepted until Sunday, July 30, at 12:00 p.m. CDT. For more about what CGC Cards has planned for The National, go here.

On-site grading submissions are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. CGC Cards expects extremely high demand and space is limited, so submitters are encouraged to submit at the start of the show. If on-site grading submissions need to be cut off early, submissions will still be accepted for grading at CGC Cards headquarters at the regular fees and turnaround times.

Meanwhile, the other divisions of Certified Guaranty Company® (CGC®) — CGC Comics™, CGC Video Games™ and CGC Home Video™ — will also be accepting drop-offs of regular submissions to be graded at the company’s Florida headquarters. Show drop-offs save on shipping fees one-way to CGC’s facility. For more information about submitting comics, video games and home video, go here.

CGC Cards will be at booth #2811 to accept your sports cards, TCGs and non-sports cards!
