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 CGC Trading Cards and sufficient documentation must be provided to confirm the requested pedigree. You can pedigree a card to yourself, typically without providing any documentation.

CrossOver
(Also select a grading tier)

A card in a PSA or Beckett holder is evaluated for CGC Trading Cards certification. Select an appropriate grading tier based on the card’s fair market value and your desired turnaround time. If the card does not cross, the full grading fee will still apply. 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 CGC Trading Cards only if all of the sub-grades will be the same or higher with CGC Trading Cards. Cross at Any Grade: If you would like your PSA or Beckett-holdered card certified by CGC Trading Cards even if CGC Trading Cards determines that it will receive a lower grade, specify CROSS AT ANY GRADE.
