We will be accepting submissions at all shows. Please stay tuned for more information.
"Collectors and dealers around the globe have quickly embraced CGC Trading Cards’ industry-leading grading and encapsulation services," said Steven R. Eichenbaum, CEO of CCG. "By accepting submissions at our Munich and London offices, we are glad to make it more convenient for those in Europe and the UK to submit cards to us."
The Munich office, located at Seidlstrasse, is operated by NGC International GmbH (NGC GmbH), which also accepts coin grading submissions for Numismatic Guaranty Company™ (NGC®) and banknote grading submissions for Paper Money Guaranty™ (PMG®).

None of the CCG companies buy or sell collectibles, and their employees are prohibited from dealing in collectibles to ensure impartiality. Additionally, submitters’ identities are kept anonymous to the graders to prevent any conflicts of interest.
