Shipping & Insurance

We take great care in packing and shipping your comics to ensure that they arrive at CGC’s facilities in the exact condition that we received them. Please note that while your comics are not covered for loss in transit, in 20+ years we have not had one single comic lost in the mail. Any comic you drop off is covered for its full declared value while at CGC for processing. The fees above include all charges for grading, processing, shipping, and clearing the border. You will not incur one penny beyond what is charged to you upfront.
