Hey, MTG collectors! CGC Trading Cards will be attending the Magic: The Gathering Las Vegas show at the Las Vegas Convention Center on November 19-21, 2021. Visit the CGC Trading Cards booth to chat with Senior Grading Finalizer Matt Quinn and other CGC Trading Cards representatives, who will answer questions, explain CGC Trading Cards’ services and accept submissions. Also attending the show are special guests, such as Kyle Hill, Rachel Weeks and Reid Duke as well as the artists Johannes Voss, Mark Poole, Alayna Danner and more.

Preparing Express Drop-off submissions for the show

To streamline submissions at the show, please take the following steps before arriving:

  1. Become a CGC Collectors Society member. To join CGC, click here.
  2. Complete the CGC Trading Cards Online Submission Form under “Show Drop-off” and print the packing slip. Make sure your account number, shipping address, return shipping method and requested services are included on the paperwork.
  3. Carefully insert each of your cards in a CGC Trading Cards Sleeve or similar product and then within a CGC Trading Cards Semi-Rigid Card Holder or similar product. Find out more about CGC Trading Cards Card Sleeves and Semi-Rigid Holders here.

If there are 10 or fewer cards in your submission, CGC Trading Cards will check them in front of you at the show. If the submission has more than 10 cards, it will be placed in a tamper-proof container and then opened later under security cameras.
