Welcome to Should I Grade It? a service I provide for those who are trying to decide whether or not to send in a raw comic to CGC for grading.

Update 3/12/2020

Normally my Should I Grade It? service has a cost of $2.99 USD per market report ordered. However due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertain times we are living in, I felt like I needed to give back to the community in some way. So in that spirit, I am making these market reports available at no charge to you until further notice.

Because I expect a dramatic increase in usage of this service, I only ask that you please limit your requests to 1 or 2 comic books at a time. Also, please allow up to 7 days for your market report to be delivered. Thank you for your consideration, and enjoy this service on me.

Owner, Certified Comic Shop

I’ll personally evaluate your comic using real-time market information and provide you with a detailed report via email. Included in the report will be current market conditions specific to your issue including the last sale price, 90 day and/or 12 month average selling price, the expected profit should you decide to sell your comic after grading and more!

NOTE ON SIGNED COMICS: CGC will only grade a signed comic if they’ve actually witnessed the signature being written on the comic. This is what they call their Signature Series service. Now, you can still submit unwitnessed signatures in for grading, however CGC will slab the comic with their green, Qualified label which denotes there’s a serious defect to the comic – in this case writing on the cover. Green label slabs tend to have a lesser value because of this. If your comic is signed, I recommend not filling out this form, and instead exploring the Verified Signature Program from CBCS.
