Selecting the PGX Service you need.
PGX Service Level has only 2 determining factors:
  Your comic’s Age (publication date) and your selected Turn-Around-Time are used to determine the PGX grading service level.  See the chart below to determine which service fits for each of your comics.

We will make every attempt for this service to NOT affect our normal turnaround times but it could add up to three days to the time frame.

Return Time Defined as the number of “business days” between us receiving your comic books and us grading and shipping them back to you. We guarantee our posted return times to within 4 business days of expected turnaround time, and often books are returned sooner than posted return times. If we keep your books for more than 4 business days over the posted return times, we will provide compensation.  * Orders of 30+ books may have slightly longer turn-around times though generally do not.  We’ll contact you with that information upon receiving your order if needed.

*Pricing is $50 for Next Day orders that are dropped off, $75 per book for Same Day service. (No FMV limits ever of course). (discounts may be applied)
