Grading Submissions
Information regarding our grading submissions.


Why submit your cards with LCB?
  • No Annual Membership - Some grading services charges individual submitters an annual fee to be able to send cards to them for grading, LCB does not require that.
  • Save Time! - We are sure you have better things to do on a weekend than log and pack your cards to send to out.; that’s why we are here to do it for you.
  • Available Evaluation of Cards by Trained Pros - Imagine looking at thousands of cards every day for twelve years - that’s pretty much our life story at LCB. We are available to evaluate your raw cards and give you our opinion as to whether or not they are worth submitting for grading (additional fee applies).
  • Lower Cost of Shipping & Insurance - Because we send group submissions, the cost of insurance and shipping is shared by everyone.
  • Faster Processing Speeds - As a Group Submitter, our processing times are faster than an individual submitter.
For all status updates to any submissions, please find them here: http://lcbgrading.com/. The website is updated as frequently as every other day with any changes to the submissions.

☨ - Upcharges happen when the card, after grading, is worth more than the max declared value. PSA will up-charge to the level it should have gone under.
☨☨ - Prince reduced if sending 20+ cards. $1 off per card for 20-49, $2 off per card for 50+

Additional Services: (These services are all required to be paid BEFORE your cards are sent out to the grading companies)

Review Services. $5/Card - With this service, we will review each card independently and recommend either BGS/PSA service on them. If you send a package & ask for review on them you will be billed the $5/card.
Cleaning Services. $3/Card - This includes wiping down, & anything else we can do to improve the condition of the card without altering it. If you would like it sent no matter what, make note of that as part of your submission. Note: We cannot submit a group submission with minimum grade levels, so we cannot accommodate individual cards in which you want them to not grade them if they get lower than a certain grade.



Payment:
Payment is not due until the cards return from grading! You can pre-pay for some/all of your cards, but we ask if you are paying a portion of it, you do it in Card Intervals (IE, if its $20/card, you pay in $20 increments).
Late Fees: If you don't pay for your submission within 2 weeks, a late fee of $3/card will be applied. If they aren't paid for within 2 months, we auction the cards at a 50% consignment rate less all grading fees plus a MINIMUM convenience fee of $5/card. Please submit payments for graded cards on time, we get billed for them when we send in. In other words, we are already floating the fees for 30-90 days by the time we get the cards back. If there is any balance remaining, it will be added to your LCB Rewards account.*


Preparing Your Submission
Before sending you cards to us, here are a few things you can do to make the process easier on both parties.
- Include a return address on your package. This will help us note who the submission is from if you don't denote it anywhere else.
- Denote inside the package, what service the cards are being sent to. If you are sending in for multiple services, please make sure you denote which cards are for what service.
- An easy way to do this, is simply use team bags/graded card sleeves for anything and write with a marker on the outside of them to designate what is what\
- PM Ron on Facebook/Text/Email with a picture of the tracking number for your package.
- If you send us cards that are slabbed already and we have to crack them, the fee is $2/card. Please note this when sending in submissions.
- Cards should be in top loaders (BGS) or Card Savers (PSA) when you send then.
- Please do not tape the top loaders individually, instead put them in team bags to keep them from moving around.
