What is "declared value"?

The declared value is the estimated monetary value of your card on the market at the time of ordering. It is expressed in euros and its determination can be based on the following elements:

  • Recent sales on online sales platforms
  • Average price of current ads on these platforms
  • Recent prices at official auctions
  • Expertise of well-known shops or collectors in the card game sector
  • Rarity (circulation, population referenced or available on the market, etc.)

This value fluctuates but can be approximated by any customer at any given time.

It is important that you use the resources available to you to correctly estimate the value of the cards you wish to have certified. This declared value will affect the certification fee or the availability of certain offers for the certification of your cards.

If insurance is selected, the declared value will also be used to determine :

  • the reference value of your card in the event of a claim for damage to the card at Safeguard's premises;
  • the reference value of your card, which will be used to insure the transport from our premises.

It is therefore important that you take the time to find out the value of your cards in relation to their apparent condition and to make a sufficiently accurate estimate of their declared value when placing your order.
