CSG Announces On-site Grading Fees for the National

Posted on 7/9/2021

Submitters can now choose “National On-site Grading” when filling out the CSG online submission form.

Certified Sports Guaranty® (CSG™) is offering on-site grading at the National Sports Collectors Convention, taking place July 28-August 1, 2021, in Chicago. Submitters will be able to get sports cards authenticated, graded and encapsulated at the show from Wednesday, July 28, through Saturday, July 31.

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

CSG will be at booth 1607, ready to grade your sports cards. Services and fees for on-site grading at the National are as follows:

CSG Grading Tier / Service Max. Value per Card (USD) On-site Grading Fee (USD)
Unlimited WalkThrough None $250 + 1% FMV
(Maximum fee $5,000)
WalkThrough $50,000 $200
Express $10,000 $100
Standard $1,000 $50
CrossOver According to tier According to tier
ReHolder $10,000 $20
High Value ReHolder None $50

Sub-grades, autograph grades and pedigrees will also be available by request at CSG’s regular pricing.

You must be a CSG Associate or higher member to submit cards for grading. To join CSG, click here. Memberships start at just $25/year! Elite members and CSG Authorized Dealers will receive their usual discount on on-site grading.

To streamline the on-site grading process, please complete the CSG online submission form in advance. Select “National On-site Grading” when filling out the form and print the packing slip to bring with you to the show. CSG will provide tablets at the booth for submitters to use to join CSG and submit, but joining and completing submission forms in advance will save you time.
