About Card Party

Card Party is a gathering for Pokémon TCG fans and all card enthusiasts. Attendees will find dozens of vendors and artists, participate in an array of interactive activities and interact with the community. Additionally, the weekend will be chock-full of panels with some of the hobby’s most prominent YouTubers and influencers, including guests such as SuperDuperDani, Leonhart, IslandGrown and Danny Phantump.

On-site card grading, including ReHolder and CrossOver submissions, will be available Friday, June 14 through Saturday, June 15. WalkThrough submissions will still be accepted until Sunday, June 16, at 12:00 p.m. ET. All you need is a free CGC account to submit for on-site grading, but paid members receive discounts (and other benefits). Learn more and select your membership level 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 headquarters at the regular fees and turnaround times.

In the next few weeks, the CGC Cards online submission form will be updated to show on-site grading services and fees at Card Party. Look for an announcement when the on-site grading submission option is available.
