Mailing packages to our office address will cause delays in us receiving your package, due to the mailing system in place at our location.

What does "sleeve" mean on your submission form?

MNT Grading now offers to sleeve cards prior to slabbing them. This was asked to be done to avoid any movement inside the holder itself, although there is minimum movement with no corners touching while inside.

ALL TCG cards will be sleeved regardless due to their smaller size to avoid them coming loose inside the slabs.

If this section on the form isn’t filled out with a Yes or No then MNT Grading will sleeve the cards going forward.

Can I drop off with MNT directly?

Unfortunately we no longer allow in-person order drop offs due to COVID among other reasons. You can still arrange drop offs with our Pristine Dealers and same with a pickup once the order is complete and returned to them.
