GRADING STANDARDS

Every dealer has his own guidelines for grading. We feel ours are among the MOST CONSERVATIVE IN THE COUNTRY.

Please read carefully — our idea of cards graded "EX-MINT or "EXCELLENT" is considerably more conservative than Beckett Monthly, Sports Collectors Digest, and other reputable publications. PLEASE NOTE — These guidelines are meant to provide a general description of each grade; but remember no two cards are identical.

NEAR MINT-MINT (NR-MT/MT) — The cards look similar to a card coming out of a pack of 1999 cards. Extremely sharp corners, decent centering, no surface wear or creasing.

EXCELLENT-MINT (EX-MT) — Card has four sharp or reasonably sharp corners, decently centered, no creasing and little if any surface wear.

EXCELLENT (EX) — Card has minor corner wear (no rounding) usually decently centered, no creasing and only minor surface wear.

VERY GOOD-EXCELLENT (VG-EX) — Has a bit more corner wear than "EX", centering is pretty normal (although some are miscut). Some VG-EX cards might have creasing, but such creases will be minor. Nice collectible cards.

GOOD-VERY GOOD (GD-VG) — Card is priced at 25-40% of "full guide" so it has corner rounding and/or a crease or two. It shows its wear and age but is still collectible.

FAIR-GOOD (F-GD) — Prices at 10-15% of "full guide". Well-worn cards. Heavy creasing and corner wear. Possible pen mark, tape mark, etc. "Bargain cards" but a chance to buy a great many cards for a modest amount.The above describes our major conditions. The few cards that fall between these grades (such as EX Plus/EX-MT are cards that demonstrate characteristics of both categories and fall between these categories.

And Lastly, remember the above is a general guide. NOT all cards will be exactly like the above description (but they should be close).
