DISPLAY CASES!

Buy a display case or two!

In addition to grading we also sell high quality acrylic display cases so you can protect your collectibles (you spent a lot!)

They are designed so you can remove your toys any time. We can even create a custom display to fit any toy you have!

News and Updates




JUNE 2021 NOTICE!


Over the last year, we have seen a huge influx of new collectors entering both the collectible toy and video game markets. As a result we've experienced an exponential surge in submissions to both AFA and VGA.

While we greatly appreciate the continued patience of our valued customers, we want to reassure everyone that our top priority is getting caught up on overdue submissions. In order to accomplish this we will be moving forward with several short-term changes.

  • We will temporarily close our Express tiers (except for loose action figures) effective immediately.
  • We will temporarily designate two weeks per month to solely process overdue Economy and Express tier submissions.

We will continue to accept submissions under the Archival and Premium tiers. All submissions already in-house or postmarked before 05/31/2021 will still be eligible to be processed under the Express Tier. Turnaround times for incoming Archival and Premium submissions will be adjusted accordingly.

In addition to the aforementioned short-term changes, we continue to work on long-term projects which will greatly enhance the submission process and customer experience moving forward. These include:

  • Significantly Increasing staffing in every department at CGA.
  • Expanding our facilities to gain additional space to process, grade, and case submissions.
  • Designing a new website to improve every facet of the customer experience.

We are very appreciative of the kind, thoughtful wishes we have received all year and are grateful as always for our special position in authenticating and preserving your most cherished items.
