CGC Launches Value Tier
CGC is offering a new comic books submission tier, called the Value Tier, for books of any comic ages valued under $100 each. This service is priced at just $21 per book, making it the lowest priced submission option for comics issued prior to 1975.
A minimum of 30 comic books is required per submission, and no pre-screen service is available. Books will be graded within an estimated 40 business days, the same turnaround time as our Economy Tier.
Steve Borock, CGC President and Primary Grader, comments that, “CGC is very excited to offer the Value Tier. Expert impartial grading is available for a greater number of books than ever before now that a price barrier has been lifted. Collectors can have the comfort of professional certification for more of their purchases and for more of their collection.”
Submitting comics using the Value Tier is the same as with any other service level. List at least 30 books with a fair market value of $100 or less (per book) on a CGC submission invoice. In the Grading Service section, select the VALUE TIER. If you are using an older version of the CGC Submission Form, check the OTHER box, and write in “VALUE TIER.” This service is not meant to be a discount on Economy Tier, and therefore CGC reserves the right to charge appropriate tier fees for all comic books with a fair market value significantly above $100.
CGC has created the Value Tier in response to requests from both dealers and collectors for a more affordable service option for lower priced books. As with any new service, we encourage submitters to give it a try and provide us with feedback. Please contact CGC customer service at email@example.com or by phone at 1-877-NM-COMIC with any inquiries or comments.
