Ambr Grading TCG Cases

The Next Generation of Card Grading

Better. Different. Actually.

We've taken a fresh approach to provide the highest level of awesome to the people who love trading card games. Check out our features and find out why Ambr Grading is actually different.

Game & Gamer Focused

We are gamers. Ambr Grading was founded on the unmet need to properly serve players and collectors of trading card games. Instead of taking in any card, we chose to focus specifically on games. This allows us to better authenticate, grade, and preserve your cards; and ultimately deliver a better product.

Our launch features Magic: The Gathering and Pokémon. More games will be added as we grow and expand.

We are gaming enthusiasts dedicated to combining deep knowledge with decades of experience to serve the collectable trading card game community!

Guaranteed Processing Times

Having a card processed within a reasonable time is essential to collectors, players, and us. We know first hand the struggle of waiting months or even a year for a card just to get checked-in for processing - which is unfortunately commonplace in the card grading industry.

We’ve taken deliberate steps to make sure your cards are processed and returned in the time we promise. To accomplish this we’ve taken a fresh approach to how orders are placed and processed and integrated modern shipping and insurance on our website to make everything easier.

Orders will be metered to ensure your cards are processed in 30 days or less. The last thing we want is for you to be without your cards for no good reason. We developed a rolling queue that will allow you to “get in line,” stage your orders, and submit when space becomes available- as soon as it is available.

What does all that mean? Instead of your order sitting on a shelf, it will be in your possession until it can be quickly graded, cased, and sent back to you.

Expert Authentication

Counterfeit cards exist, and some of them are extremely convincing. At Ambr Grading, dedicated authentication experts submit every card through a multi-step computer-assisted process to verify its authenticity. You can be confident that every card graded by us is real!

Fair, Consistent Grading

A high score should mean something, and getting a real "10" should be rare. We use an expert-designed and computer-assisted process to generate accurate and consistent card grades.

Every card that passes through Ambr Grading is graded and verified by at least two highly trained and qualified graders that have completed a rigorous training program. The card’s information is then put into a finely tuned algorithm that produces a fair, consistent grade for every card.

The result: you get a consistent and accurate grade every time.

Next-Gen Premium Cases

Tired of the old card cases? So are we. For 30+ years the label and case format for graded cards haven’t changed much.

We designed our floating-card cases with a fresh approach to enhance the aesthetics of your card and maximize protection like never before. Ambr Grading’s cases allow for full-border customization to maximize the appeal of your cards for show and play (looking at you MTG Commanders!).

The result is a beautiful, crystal-clear case that makes your card appear as if it is floating in glass. Our material provides proper Ultra-Violet (UV) resistance to protect your card for years to come!

Beautiful Custom Labels

All Ambr labels are beautifully designed by people who know and love TCGs. The results are the coolest labels you've ever seen. And you get to choose which one to use!

Our labeling process eliminates paper use and reduces waste - the case is the label.

Digital Reports

Preserving your card's data is just as important as the case and label.

Each card we process gets a Unique Identifier (UID) stored forever. You and the people you share it with will always have access to every bit of data about your card.

This comprehensive data includes the card score, subgrades, card classification, qualifiers, notes, and more! We also include high-resolution scans and completion photos for each encased card as it passes through our final Quality Assurance (QA) stage.

First-Class Customer Support

We’re gamers and nerds, and taking care of our customers is important. We want you to be thrilled with the product you get back from us, and to always feel supported as you chose to do business with us.

Our service includes transparent real-time order status on our website, open communication with you through multiple easy channels to contact us if you have any questions or issues.

At Ambr Grading you come first and will never get a “tough shit” response from us 😜.

What to Expect in Alpha

Ambr Grading is opening its ordering process to a select number of early customers! This is your chance to be a part of grading history and have the very first cards sealed in an exclusive custom Ambr Grading floating-card case.

What is an Alpha?

The Ambr Grading Alpha is a limited launch to ensure we deliver an optimized experience to every customer. Ambr Grading has developed and fully tested advanced methods in authentication and novel algorithms for grading cards with unmatched consistency- Ambr Grading is striving to ensure those same high standards apply to our customer experience before we open up to the greater community.
