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.
  • Lower Cost of Shipping & Insurance - Because we send group submissions, the cost of insurance and shipping is shared by everyone.
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.

The grading submissions we currently support are listed below. Please read over the details before you submit any cards to us, and feel free to ask us any questions that you may have on the process.

Personal Submissions
If you send enough cards to fill a group submission on your own, we can send this as a personal order. We can also send any of the services above at the higher service levels, which reduce your turn-around times. Ask us for what options are available and at what cost.


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.
