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.

For the cost of $1 USD, 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.

*After clicking the Proceed To Payment button, you’ll be taken to a product page where you can purchase your Should I Grade It? Market Report for $1 USD. Your market report will be delivered via email within 24 hours of purchase. 

Please note that if you do not complete your checkout, I will be unable to fulfill your request for a market report. While this service did start out as complimentary, the sheer volume of submissions that I have received have taken away a huge chunk of my time on a daily basis. While I’m happy to do the work, I feel like charging $1 for my time and effort is well worth it for both you and I.
