CSG and CGC Trading Cards to Attend Philadelphia Show

Posted on 2/25/2022

The companies will accept submissions at the Philadelphia Sportscard & Memorabilia Show being held March 4-6 in the Philadelphia area.

Certified Sports Guaranty® (CSG®) and CGC Trading Cards™ are attending the Philadelphia Sportscard & Memorabilia Show, being held March 4-6, 2022 at the Valley Forge Casino Resort Convention Center in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania. Representatives of the companies will be accepting submissions, answering questions, providing information on services and giving away CSG and CGC Trading Cards swag. Also attending are sport stars like Pete Rose, Julius Erving, Ozzie Smith and many more whom you do not want to miss.

Spend more time exploring the show by submitting your prepared cards through the companies’ Express Drop-off Service. By having your submission prepared before the show, you can skip the submission line and quickly hand off your cards to representatives — hassle free. Cards submitted at the show will also have an expedited two-week turnaround time. (The two-week turnaround time does not include the time to ship cards from the show nor to ship graded cards back to submitters).

CSG uses a proven, multi-step certification process to grade most types of sports cards, including baseball, basketball, football, hockey, wrestling, racing, soccer, golf, tennis, MMA and multi-sport cards. CGC Trading Cards is the division of Certified Guaranty Company® (CGC®) that provides expert and impartial authentication, grading and encapsulation services for virtually all Pokémon TCG and Magic: The Gathering cards, in addition to 11 recently added games like Digimon, MetaZoo and Weiss Schwarz.
