Premium Service Levels (2, 5, and 10-day)- This service is required on all cards that are valued at $500 or more (ungraded, high Beckett book value). Cards submitted under any of the premium levels will receive guaranteed turnaround times and sub grades on all modern cards.
Non-Guaranteed Service Levels- This service level is not valid on any cards that are valued more than $500 (ungraded, high Beckett book value). This service level will not provide sub grades on modern cards (1981 and newer) that are deemed to receive a grade of 8 and below. Sub grades may be obtained for these cards at an additional cost. This service level does not offer a guaranteed turnaround but will provide an estimated date of return in the range of 20-60 business days.
Beckett Grading reserves the right to upgrade cards to a premium level based on value. Please check any Beckett Magazine or online price guide to see the value. Premium and Non-Premium orders will be processed separately and can not be shipped back together. Please make sure that separate orders are clearly separated with individual submission forms
