UK TCG grading service GetGraded have launched a discounted service to coincide with the 25th anniversary of Pokémon. Alongside the release of Celebrations, GetGraded are are offering 25 cards graded for £25 when you grade 25 cards. Sounds a little confusing, but this equates to 50 cards graded for just about £275.

If you’re not looking to sell your graded cards at the kind of premium that PSA or Beckett provides, then this GetGraded offer could be a great way to kickstart your sealed collection. There is also the fact that the more well-known grading companies aren’t currently offering bulk submissions, so the price difference is staggering.

If you’re looking for another reason to submit, you can always tell yourself that it’s essentially a cheap pre-screening service that you can submit to be re-slabbed later. Re-slabbing is the process of taking an existing graded card from one company and having it graded by another.

I wrote a bit more in depth about this in a recent post that looked at the rise of UK grading companies if you’re looking for a little more context on UK options.

I will personally be sending a batch over to GetGraded as I have a number of cards that have personal value over resale value, as well as some I’d like to keep safe until Beckett opens their doors again.

Have you sent off any cards, or are thinking of putting together a batch? Drop some of the gems in the comments below!
