DAKA Culture, the first official distributor of sports and trading cards in China, will help facilitate submissions to CGC Cards.

CGC Cards™ is pleased to announce that NGC Shanghai Business Information Consulting Co., Ltd. (NGC Shanghai) has appointed Shanghai DAKA Culture Development Co., Ltd. (DAKA Culture) an Official Submission Center in Shanghai, China. As an Official Submission Center, DAKA Culture will help collectors submit TCGs, sports cards and non-sports cards to CGC Cards for authentication, grading and encapsulation.

DAKA Culture, also known as DAKA, was established in 2015 as the first officially licensed producer of sports and trading cards in China. Since their inception, DAKA Culture has produced many sets for various international sports teams, including Manchester City, Shanghai Shenhua and more. In addition, DAKA Culture has produced trading cards for some of China’s most popular films and TV shows, including My People, My Country, Idol Producer and My Motherland and Me.

“At DAKA Culture, we believe that collecting is a labor of love,” said Kenny Yang, DAKA Culture’s General Manager. “Partnering with CGC Cards will allow us to help collectors in Shanghai and beyond submit their cards for expert authentication and grading, so they can be assured that their collections are authentic, expertly graded and well-protected.”

CGC Cards uses expert graders, advanced technology and operational excellence to provide collectors with accurate, consistent, affordable and fast certification services. Every card certified by CGC Cards is backed by a guarantee of authenticity and grade. Nearly 5 million TCGs, sports cards and non-sports cards have already been certified by CGC Cards since it was established in July 2020.

“We’re thrilled to work with DAKA Culture to make CGC Cards’ services more accessible to collectors in China,” said Matt Quinn, CGC Cards Vice President and Senior Grading Finalizer. “As China’s first sports and trading card producer, DAKA Culture is very influential among collectors in Shanghai. By working together, we can increase awareness of the value in CGC Cards’ expert services.”
