Pedigree

A pedigree can be added to the certification label to indicate a card’s past or present ownership. To pedigree a card to a previous owner, that collector or collection must be considered to be significant by CSG and sufficient documentation must be provided to confirm the requested pedigree. You can pedigree a card to yourself, typically without providing any documentation.

CrossOver

A card in a PSA, Beckett or SGC holder is evaluated for CSG certification. The card will be removed from its holder and encapsulated by CSG only if CSG believes that the card will receive a CSG grade that is the same or higher than the grade assigned by the other grading service. If CSG believes the card does not meet its standards for the grade, it will be returned in its original holder and the grading fee will be refunded less a $4 processing fee. Sub-Grades: If the card has been assigned sub-grades by the other grading service, it will be removed from its holder and encapsulated by CSG only if CSG believes all of the sub-grades will be the same or higher with CSG. Cross at Any Grade: If you would like your PSA, Beckett or SGC-holdered card certified by CSG even if CSG determines that it will receive a lower grade, specify CROSS AT ANY GRADE.
