CSG reserves the right to levy additional fees to customers based on the assessed value of the card. In the event that additional fees are levied, the submitter is responsible for paying all additional fees assessed for their own cards.

CSG will certify cards with manufacturer’s certified (“pack pulled”) autographs. Cards with other autographs are not currently eligible for CSG certification.

Sports cards that are thicker than standard stock are encapsulated in the CSG Thick Holder, which comes in three sizes: 3.5mm, 5.5mm and 7.25mm. If you are submitting a thick card, select “Thick” under “Holder Type” when filling out the CSG online submission form.

The appropriate size holder for your card will be determined by CSG’s highly trained staff at its sole discretion.

In some cases, certain thick cards that would normally be accepted for certification may have irregular dimensions and cannot be encapsulated for this reason. In those cases, the cards will be returned unencapsulated (“raw”), and the grading fee will be refunded.
