CSG Attending The Philly Show in Philadelphia, PA
Posted on 8/30/2021
Hey, sports card collectors! Submit your baseball cards and other sports cards to Certified Sports Guaranty® (CSG™) at The Philly Show, taking place at the Valley Forge Casino Resort in Philadelphia on September 24-26, 2021. CSG representatives will be there to accept submissions, answer questions and explain CSG’s services and benefits.
To save time and skip the submission line, take advantage of the new and improved CSG online submission form and Express Drop-off service at the show. The upgraded form features a predictive card search engine and a one-touch select function. It also saves your progress so that you can add, edit and complete your order at any time. Express Drop-off allows you to then quickly hand off your prepared submission to a CSG rep with no hassle. Keep reading for step-by-step instructions to get your submission ready.
Since launching in February 2021, CSG has been embraced by sports card collectors seeking expert and impartial third-party grading. With world-class expertise, advanced technology and the best holder in the industry, CSG is changing the game, and submitting at The Philly Show is a great way to discover CSG’s services.
Please note: CSG will accept Pokémon and Magic: The Gathering card submissions to CGC® Trading Cards at this event, but please refrain from bringing comics, magazines and posters.
