Submission Guide

Ordering Instructions

Select the type of service on our shopping menu and add the cards to your cart one at a time. Include the following details for each card you submit.

  • Year
  • Manufacturer
  • Set
  • Card #
  • Player Name/Card Name
  • Declared Value

Add the adequate amount of insurance during checkout to cover the total declared value of your order. Make sure you accurately calculate this, as the insurance you choose will only cover the amount you purchase. 

Packaging Instructions

Please follow these instructions to ensure that your cards arrive safely and securely.

Step 1

Carefully inspect and remove any debris from card. Place into a soft card protector sleeve holding card by the edges to avoiding fingerprints or smudges on the surface. We recommend Ultra Pro Soft Card Sleeves 2-5/8″ X 3-5/8″, Ultra Clear.

Step 2

Insert sleeved card into a rigid card holder to protect from damage during the shipping process. Do not push the card into the holder, but slightly tap the holder on a hard surface so that the card slides down on its own. We recommend UltraPro 3″ x 4″ Clear Regular Top Loaders.

Step 3

Arrange cards in the same order as they are entered in your shopping cart. Print a copy of your invoice and include it with your shipment. Do not place stickers or mark holders to identify cards, just make sure they are in the proper order when packaged.

Step 4

Place card holders between two pieces of slightly oversized cardboard. Recommended cardboard size for a 3″x4″ Top Loader would be 3.5″x5″. If you are submitting more than 10 cards, use another pair of cardboard protectors for each 10 cards you are shipping.

Step 5

Place two rubberbands over the card board (one at each end) to hold the cards secure and prevent them from falling out. Do not overtighten the rubberbands to avoid any damage to your cards.

Step 6

Use bubblewrap to protect the cardboard packet containing your cards. Pack the items in a sturdy cardboard box, with a layer bottom layer of styrofoam peanuts or other packing material.

Step 7

Place additional packing material on top of the packet to ensure adequate protection during shipping. Fold and place the printed copy of your invoice on top of the packing material. If you did not print your invoice during ordering, go to ‘My Account’, click on ‘Orders’, and print your invoice from there.
