CARD GRADING


Cards have been rated using the following scale: Mint (M) - Unplayed (NM) - Light Play (VF) - Medium Play (F) - Heavy Play (G) - Damaged (P)



Mint
(M)



This unplayed card is perfect in every way. Since grading is very subjective, you will virtually never see a card graded this way unless it is a PSA or BSG graded card.

Unplayed
(NM)



This unplayed card shows almost no wear and may have a few minor scraches and/or slight marks on the card's edges.

Light Play
(VF)



This card has been played, but not heavily. It has some minor scratches and/or less-than-perfect edges. It will show less than 1/32" depth of white along one or two edges of one face of the card.

Medium Play
(F)



This card has obviously been played more heavily. It lacks marks that would make it easily identifiable. It has some scratches and/or less-than-perfect edges. It will show less than 1/16" depth of white along one or more edges of one face of the card. It may have a minor crease that is only visible close up.

Heavy Play
(G)



This card has a played look to it. It will have white showing on three or four edges on both faces. This card may also have more than 1/16" depth of white showing on an edge on the back face of the card. It may also have permanent black marks from dirt. Cannot be easily distingushed from the other Good condition cards of the playdeck.

Poor
(P)

This card is in less than Good condition. It has a distinguishing mark that distinguishes it from other cards of the playdeck.
