3.1 Black Label Grading Submissions

It is up to the individual to submit their cards safely to Black Label Grading Ltd. We are not responsible for any damage, loss or theft whilst the cards are in transit from you to us.

Submissions must contain a submission form containing clear information about the individual (name, number, email etc.) and the number of cards for submission. If a package is received without this information, we will hold onto the cards for 12 months or until the individual comes forward with ownership details.

The term “Submission Deadline” refers to the cut off date and time for accepting deliveries for the next submission. Any trading cards received after this deadline will be held for the next submission (usually, but not always, this will be the following month).

All cards will be treated as owned by the person who makes the order. We do not knowingly take submissions from persons under 18 years of age. If you are under 18 years old and wish to submit cards, please ask an adult to do this on your behalf.

If you do not wish to have your submissions featured on our social media channels, please make this known when your order is placed. By showing your interest in having your cards featured on our social channels, this does not explicitly mean they will be. We will try our best to feature as many submissions as possible. 

3.2 Shipping

Black Label Grading use Fedex for all shipments to and from Beckett Grading Services.

Shipments are insured up the value of £50,000. We will make every effort to ensure the declared value of the contents of each shipment is within £50,000. For a copy of our terms, please get in touch.

Each individual card within a parcel sent to Beckett is insured for its ungraded value. Items returning from Beckett are insured for their graded value (up to a maximum value of £1000 per card). 

Shipments from us to you within the UK are sent by Royal Mail signed for delivery. Each package is insured up to the value of £5,000 (up to a maximum value of £1000 per card) . The customer must let us know if they require another delivery option and this will be agreed and charged on a case by case basis. In the unlikely event that a package is undelivered, BLG requires Royal Mail to confirm the package is lost in order to make a claim. 

A compulsory £15 / card excess is applied to each card during transit to and from America and to the customer in the UK. This excess is passed onto the customer in the event a shipment is lost or stolen. 

3.3 Payments

Payments must be made within 30 days of invoice. 

Payment is taken online only. Customers will receive an invoice via email once cards have been processed by Black Label Grading and are awaiting shipment. The deadline for payment will be sent in this email. It is the customers duty to ensure the email provided is correct, and any broken links within the email are reported to us in a timely manner. 

We offer payment plans through Klarna. The minimum spend to use our payment plans is £350. All terms relating to Klarna’s service can be found on their website. 

We do not charge any late fees if payment is not received within 30 days of invoice. If a payment is not received before cards are returned to us from Beckett, we reserve the right to keep the graded cards until payment has been received. We will hold cards for 3 months, after which the cards will become property of Black Label Grading. 

In the event that we make a change to or cancel an order, we may attempt to notify you by contacting the e-mail and/or billing address/phone number provided at the time the order was made.

You agree to provide current, complete and accurate purchase and contact information for all purchases made at our store. You agree to promptly update your contact information, including your email address so we can contact you as needed.

3.4 Delays

All cards that are submitted to Beckett Grading Services are sent on an estimated turnaround time. We are not held liable for any delays in this turnaround time.

Black Label Grading is not responsible for late arrival or late delivery of your card(s). 

3.5 Refunds

Due to the nature of our service, we are unable to offer refunds on cards that have been submitted and paid for.

We will be able to return cards prior to payment at a cost of shipment. This will be discussed on a case by case basis.

In the unlikely event that a package is confirmed lost before arriving at Beckett, BLG will refund the full amount paid for our services. Should a parcel be confirmed lost following grading at Beckett, fees paid to BLG will not be refunded.
