CGC Signature Series

The CGC Signature Series label (yellow) is applied to comic books that have been signed by someone of significance to the comic.

Contact NGC UK to confirm eligibility prior to handling a book signed per CGC Signature Series. Applies to all collectibles on the form.

Notes:

The fees above apply only to direct submissions to NGC UK by NGC UK Collector members. In the event that NGC UK, at its sole discretion, determines that the fair market value of a collectible is higher than the value stated by the submitter, NGC UK will move the collectible to the appropriate higher tier and the additional charge will be the responsibility of the submitter. For more information on determining fair market value, review the Declared Value Policy.

Collectibles submitted for regrading with their original label ARE NOT GUARANTEED TO RECEIVE THE SAME GRADE. Please remember that NGC UK does not return Mylars or backing boards sent in with collectibles. Please do not send in your collectible’s Certificate of Authenticity (COA) as we cannot guarantee that it will be returned. Please note that national holidays and the Fridays before a major convention are not counted as business days for submission processing.
