Choose Your Cards


This single question is the most overthought part about grading. Equally, it is so simple to answer.


Here’s our thoughts on choosing what you should grade:


1. Grade a card if you like it. If you love the art, it’ll look better in a slab. Preserve & display it. Simple.

2. Grade rare cards. If you have cards that have high ungraded value. Especially originals from 1996+ You will increase buyer confidence when selling with a grade. 



Choose Return Time

Go to the ‘submit here’ tab under ‘submit cards’ at the top of the website.

Simply select 20 days, 10 days or 1 day return.

You will see that the price per card increase the faster you wish to have your cards back from us.

 Return times are all guaranteed.
