As a cost effective guideline, books should be worth at least $500 in their present condition.
Pre-screen charges: minimum of $5 and any book valued above $1000 will be 1% of FMV which will be rolled into pressing charges. There is also a $10 charge to crack books out of CGC slabbed holders and $10/book per submission to CGC. Multiple copies of books to CGC: $10 plus $5/each additional.
Photography documentation - $25/book
Quick 7-10 day turnaround for high priced items - additional $100 or wait 4-6 weeks.
Cleaning involves simple, very light dry erasure in white areas of book, front and back covers within CGC/CBCS guidelines for Universal Label. Pressing involves local and intact pressing on covers and interior pages.
