CGC Announces New Services and Fees for 2012

Posted: 12/6/2011

CGC is changing the price schedule of its grading tiers, effective January 1, 2012. All books sent in packages received by CGC after January 1, 2012, will be processed at the new rates.

CGC has announced its revised services and fees schedule that will go into effect January 1, 2012. These changes constitute the first comprehensive revision to CGC’s price schedule since May 2009. A $5 handling charge per submission invoice has also been added to all grading submissions.

A handful of related service changes will also go into effect. The maximum value to submit for our standard ReHolder service is less than $50,000. For books valued at $50,000 or more, use the new High Value ReHolder service. All ReHolders are for mail-in submissions only. CGC no longer accepts ReHolder submissions at shows.

Collectors Society members and CGC Member Dealers will continue to receive their same percentage discounts from the Retail Prices shown on the following table.
