Why CGC Trading Cards?
CGC Trading Cards provides this confidence through its expert and impartial authentication, grading and encapsulation services for the most popular trading card games, including Pokémon, Magic, Dragon Ball Super, Flesh and Blood, MetaZoo and many more.
After a trading card has been authenticated and graded by CGC Trading Cards, it is encapsulated in the CGC Trading Cards holder, which provides the best in protection and display while being portable and easy to store.
CGC Trading Cards graders use a highly accurate, industry-standard 10-point grading scale and evaluate cards using advanced authentication and grading equipment, including devices that perform ultra-microscopic inspections and precisely calculate centering.
The CGC Trading Cards holder is made from the same time-tested, durable and optically superior materials as the CGC comic book holder. With crystal-clear optics, the artwork, color and detail of a card are never obscured.
The trading card has been inspected by at least two (2) professionals.
The trading card is authentic
The trading card has not been overgraded (meaning it is not graded higher than CGC Trading Cards’ Grading Standards)
