|Service Tier||Turnaround & Fee||Guidelines|
|Review||Based on Tier Price||If you disagree with a grade assigned by SGC you may submit the card for review. The holder must be intact and show no evidence of tampering. Holders that show evidence of tampering are not covered under the SGC Guarantee.|
|Reholder||1-2 Business Day Service,
|If a holder is chipped, scratched or cracked, it can be resubmitted for placement in a new holder.|
|Crossover||Based on Tier Price||Cards from other grading services are reviewed for SGC certification. You must specify the minimum grade you will accept for crossover.|
|Authentic||Refer to appropriate
|Cards submitted that are authentic, but not subject to a numeric grade due to trimming or color enhancement can be assigned the “A” designation. Cards marked with the “A” are authentic, but ungradeable. SGC can assign the “A” grade to such cards at the submitter’s request.|
|Bulk Submission||Based on Tier Price||For large submissions please call for pricing. 1-800-SGC-9212|
- Cards requiring custom inserts are subject to longer lead times. Please consult our website for a list of issues requiring custom inserts, as well as a list of cards we do not grade. Any card requiring a custom insert must be submitted at the $10 level or higher.
- SGC will not refund grading fees for cards that were submitted for grading but have been rejected due to any of the following: trimmed, altered, counterfeit, color added, etc.
- Cards on regrade or reholder service: SGC has the right to reevaluate the card and assign a newly established grade if SGC believes the card was originally misgraded. If the grade change results in a loss of value of the card, SGC will compensate the customer based upon market value as solely determined by SGC.
