MAGAZINE GRADING

As well as comics, CGC also grade magazines. (And oversized comic books)

 

Every magazine certified by CGC is graded by the most experienced and trusted team, according to well-established grading standards. Furthermore, every CGC-certified magazine undergoes a thorough restoration check by leading professionals during the certification process. When restoration is detected, it is fully noted on the certification label.

 

Once certified by CGC, a magazine is encapsulated in a state-of-the art, tamper-evident holder, providing superior protection and stability for long-term preservation. Your books will be packaged then shipped fully insured on your behalf to CGC in Florida, USA. Once they reach destination, they will be officially graded, authenticated and encased. Once completed they are shipped back to us (still fully insured). 

 

Once your books are back with us in the UK they will be posted back to you via a 'signed for and tracked' courier service. The turnaround times mentioned may vary considerably based on CGC'c workload at the time of submission.
