Product Condition Guide


The following condition guide applies for both Holofoil & Non-Holofoil cards.

NOTE: Centering does not effect the condition of a raw card for sale on our store. Due to quality control issues, especially in Pokemon with sheet cutting, we advise you to assume no card is within 50/50 or 60/40 centering. Please assume we do not have any PSA 10 candidate (GEM MINT) cards. Near Mint is PSA 7 or higher, and that is effectively what we are guaranteeing with our condition guide below.

NOTE: Please refer to titles for the actual card you are purchasing or selling. Images can often be off, especially for Wizards Of The Coast Era cards where the 1st Edition images are used for both 1st Edition & Unlimited variants (Not sure why this is a thing but it's what our system has, sorry). Our titles are our way to communicating the cards accurately.

Near Mint

Cards in Near Mint condition show minimal to no wear from shuffling, play or handling and can have a nearly unmarked surface, corners and unblemished edges outside of a few minimal flaws. A Near Mint card may have a tiny edge nick or up to a few mild scratches.

Note that Holofoil cards can be slightly warped due to materials of the cards.

Lightly Played

Cards in Lightly Played (LP) condition may have minor border, surface or corner wear or even just several scuffs or 5-15 scratches. There are no major defects noticeable on the cards.

Moderately Played

Cards in Moderately Played (MP) condition can have border wear, corner wear, excessive scratching or scuffing, creases/dents or whitening or any combination of mild examples of these marks. Creasing and/or dents must be very minor, and not in combination with any other defects listed.

Heavily Played

Cards in Heavily Played (HP) condition show a severe amount of wear, and can have border wear, corner wear, scratching or scuffing, creases/dents or whitening or any combination of mild examples of these marks, in high quantity.
