One credit equals one CGC graded 9.8 comic book. To begin, fill out the information on the "Sign Up Form" page and a PayPal invoice will be sent to you to add credits into your account. Once the invoice is paid, your Graded 9.8 Subscription Service begins!
Submit your "want list" which may consist of upcoming main covers, some "B" covers, 2nd prints and/or annuals (no ratio variants or back issues). You can request the full run of a title or simply request specific issues. Some restrictions may apply. Requests may be made well in advance, but no later than 8am CST the day the requested comic is released.
Once back from CGC, your 9.8 comics will be inspected, carefully packaged, boxed and shipped to you via USPS Mail. There are no additional charges at this time since everything was prepaid. We ship only to the US. The service is only for CGC 9.8s, no other grades will be sent to you.
Credits are used for most main covers, "B" covers, additional printings and annuals that have a $5.99 cover price or less. Comics marked up by retailers on release day may not qualify for this service. Each credit is $49.99 plus S&H.
For example, buying the minimum 3 credits could get you CGC 9.8 copies of the next three issues of BATMAN, or it could get you the next issue of SPAWN, the next J. Scott Campbell cover, and the final issue of WHATEVER that comes out in 4 months.
Back issues, magazine-size comics, ratio variants and special limited variants are not part of this service. Only unreleased, future issues qualify for requests. You may request only one copy of any particular cover. (Other restrictions may apply.)
CGC 9.8s are not guaranteed (sometimes there is printing damage beyond our control, for example), but if we fail to fill one of your requests that credit remains unused and may be assigned to another comic request, so there is no risk to you!
You may request to have your comics shipped to you as they arrive from CGC or you may ask us to hold to 3 comics and then ship. Signature Confirmation and/or insurance is extra and must be specifically requested.
United States: $13.99 for one comic shipped or $19.99 for 3 comics shipped USPS Priority Mail.
