CGC Cards Announces On-site Grading Fees for the 2024 National

CGC Cards™ is excited to once again offer the most attractive option for on-site grading at the upcoming 2024 National Sports Collectors Convention at the I-X Center in Cleveland, Ohio, happening July 24-28, 2024. With on-site grading, submitters get their cards graded and returned by the end of the show, saving time and shipping fees. See below for pricing!

As CGC Cards launches combined autograph authentication and grading services with JSA in the coming days, we will be at The National this month with a host of exciting activities, including on-site grading! Visit our booth to test your skills with a grading competition and meet a grader. Be sure to ask about free giveaways and your chance to win prizes. Learn more here.

Read on for more about great rarities graded by CGC Cards, including Alpha Playtest Pokémon cards in a July auction and a rare Joe Montana error card. This month, we’re putting a spotlight on a vintage football set, a Gengar card, a parody card game from the 1980s and a counterfeit from the world of soccer. In addition to The National, you can catch us at shows in Texas and California this month. See you there!

Break cards but not the bank! Submit your sports cards, TCGs and non-sports cards for on-site grading and get them back before the end of the show — at the best prices.

And more big news is on the way! CGC Cards is preparing to launch combined CGC and JSA autograph authentication services for cards just in time for The National, along with a full launch of CGC Signature Series for cards. Stay tuned for announcements with availability and pricing for autograph services.

Submit cards for on-site grading at Booth #6016

On-site grading, including ReHolder and CrossOver submissions, will be available Wednesday, July 24, through Saturday, July 27. WalkThrough submissions will be accepted until Sunday, July 28, at 12:00 p.m. ET. All you need is a free account to submit to CGC Cards 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 Cards headquarters at the regular fees and turnaround times.

CGC Cards is also offering on-site ReHolder and CrossOver services at the show. ReHolder submissions are just $10 per card, and CrossOver pricing is based on grading tier. To learn more about CGC Cards and see its regular grading services and fees, go here.

Regular submission drop-off

CGC will also accept regular submissions of comics, magazines, cards, video games and home video collectibles to be taken back to its headquarters for certification at regular grading fees, allowing submitters to save one way on shipping!

Please take the following steps for Express Drop-off, which enables you to skip the line and quickly hand off your prepared submission to a CGC representative:

    1. Create a CGC account here. All it takes is a free account to submit, and paid members get additional discounts and benefits.
    2. Go to the online submission form for cardscomicsvideo games or home video.
