AFA requires relatively accurate values to be assigned to items submitted for grading. Please be aware that the proper declaration of value is for your protection as this is the maximum compensation you will receive in case of damage. The value you declare should represent the value you would place on your item after it has been graded and is ready to ship back to you. It should also include all costs such as shipping and grading fees associated with your item. If you’d like an estimate of what your item is worth, we recommend checking completed eBay auctions or looking for similar items for sale on the internet from various auction houses, collectors and/or dealers. We do not provide any sort of appraisal services, thus we cannot give an accurate estimate regarding the market value of an item.
While the list displayed below includes only a small fraction of items which are required to be insured for a certain value, it represents some of the most common items which must be insured for at least the value listed. These values relate only to carded and sealed in box items graded under the AFA Standard Grading Scale which are in moderate to high grade. These values are by no means an accurate reflection of actual value, and are as stated, the minimum values we will allow. We strongly encourage you to insure your items for their full replacement value which would be much higher than the values listed below in the vast majority of cases. Over the last few years we have seen a dramatic upswings in value, especially for video games so please research each item thoroughly.
