(1) Print out submission form and send us with your cards for grading. All grading process is done in Dallas, US office. If you prefer, you can use online submission page. Please put cards in Card Saver / Top loader / magnetic holder in a group with bubble wrap.

We highly recommend EMS and FedEx which are quite reliable carriers.

Insurance amount is an issue for international submission. The one thing we can say is higher insurance amount does not mean much safer method. All USPS packages will be treated precisely regardless of insurance amount. Each country has its own regulation for imported goods and it means higher percentage to be charged for import tax. We mark Returned Goods along with an official letter that cards have not been purchased.

Simply, you can choose the declared value on the package by yourself since single trading cards do not have any fixed value unlike TV, iPhone.) On the submission form, you need to fill out the “return insurance; $1.25 per $100”. The amount is up to you and you can choose the insurance amount at the lower part of the submission form “7. Return insurance (see Table) “If you write down $0 at 7. Return insurance line, then your package will be marked as “Declared value: $0 and $1.25 for $100 declared value.”
