Card Condition Guide

Near Mint to Mint (NM-Mint) = A Near Mint to Mint condition card can range from Near Mint to Mint condition and we would grade most of these cards an 8/10 or 9/10. NM-Mint condition cards may have a few minor imperfections such as nicks on edges or light scratches. Many times, our NM-Mint cards are in pack fresh condition but sometimes they aren't. If you're a super picky collector, we highly recommend buying PSA and Beckett (BGS) professionally graded cards. Please note that graded cards that have high grades (i.e. MINT, GEM MINT and PRISTINE), generally sell for significantly more than ungraded cards. Please contact us by clicking the 'Contact Us' link at the very bottom of the page if you're looking for graded cards.

Lightly Played (LP) = A card in this condition has several imperfections such as nicks, minor scuffing, edge wear and/or light scratches.
