CGC Video Games offers two grading tiers based a game's fair market value (FMV). For the Standard tier (FMV of up to $2,500), the grading fee is $40 per game. For the WalkThrough tier (unlimited FMV), the grading fee is $150 plus 2% of FMV per game. Once you select your grading tier, you can also choose add-on services like personalization or a pedigree.
Once you have submitted an order to CGC Video Games via the online submission form, it’s time to prepare your games for shipment. Follow our packaging instructions to ensure your games enjoy a safe journey.
Elite, Premium and Associate members (of any of the Certified Collectibles Group companies) can submit video games directly to CGC Video Games. Memberships start at just $25 per year. Once you’ve become a member, you can complete our user-friendly online submission form and submit your games to CGC Video Games for certification.
CGC Video Games recognizes three pedigrees — Carolina, Dreamer and Indiana — to indicate a video game’s status as part of a recognized pedigree collection. Submitters should choose the applicable pedigree as an add-on service when filling out the CGC Video Games online submission form.
