Here is the Grading system I use!!
GEM-MT : Gem Mint
A Gem Mint card is a virtually perfect card. Attributes include four perfectly sharp corners, sharp focus and full original gloss.
A Gem Mint card must be free of staining of any kind,but an allowance may be made for a slight printing imperfection, if it doesn’t impair the overall appeal of the card.
MINT : Mint
A Mint is a superb condition card that exhibits only one of the following minor flaws: a very slight wax stain on reverse, a minor printing imperfection or slightly off-white borders.
NM-MT : Near Mint-Mint
A NM-MT is a super high-end card that appears Mint at first glance, but upon closer inspection, the card can exhibit the following: a very slight wax stain on reverse, slightest fraying at one or two corners, a minor printing imperfection, and/or slightly off-white borders.
NM : Near Mint
A NM is a card with just a slight surface wear visible upon close inspection.
There may be slight fraying on some corners. Picture focus may be slightly out-of-register. A minor printing blemish is acceptable.
Slight wax staining is acceptable on the back of the card only. Most of the original gloss is retained.
EX-MT : Excellent-Mint
An EX-MT card may have visible surface wear or a printing defect which does not detract from its overall appeal.
A very light scratch may be detected only upon close inspection. Corners may have slightly graduated fraying.
Picture focus may be slightly out-of-register. Card may show some loss of original gloss, may have minor wax stain on reverse,
may exhibit very slight notching on edges and may also show some off-whiteness on borders.
EX : Excellent
On EX- cards, very minor rounding of the corners is becoming evident. Surface wear or printing defects are more visible. There may be minor chipping on edges. Loss of original gloss will be more apparent. Focus of picture may be slightly out-of-register. Several light scratches may be visible upon close inspection, but do not detract from the appeal of the card. Card may show some off-whiteness of borders.
VG-EX : Very Good-Excellent
A VG-EX card’s corners may be slightly rounded. Surface wear is noticeable . The card may have light scuffing or light scratches.
Borders may be slightly off-white. A light crease may be visible.
VG : Very Good
A VG card reveals some rounding of the corners, though not extreme. Some surface wear will be apparent, along with possible light scuffing or light scratches.
Focus may be somewhat off-register and edges may exhibit noticeable wear. Much, but not all, of the card’s original gloss will be lost. Borders may be somewhat yelloowed and/or discolored. A crease may be visible. Printing defects are possible. Slight stain may show on obverse and wax staining
on reverse may be more prominent.
GOOD : Good
A Good card’s corners show accelerated rounding and surface wear is starting to become obvious.
A good card may have scratching, scuffing, light staining, or chipping of enamel on obverse.
There may be several creases. Original gloss may be completely absent. Card may show considerable discoloration or marks. This is the highest grade that can have pen or other writing or marks on the card without noting in the auction.
FR : Fair
A Fair card’s corners will show extreme wear, possibly affecting framing of the picture. The surface of the card will show advanced stages of wear,
including scuffing, scratching, pitting, chipping, staining and pin or punch holes. The picture will possibly be quite out-of-register and the borders may have become brown and dirty.
The card may have one or more heavy creases. Even though the card may be heavily worn, it cannot achieve this grade if it is missing solid pieces of the card as a result of a major tear, etc.
This would include damage such as the removal of the back layer of the card or an entire corner.
PR : Poor
A Poor will exhibit many of the same qualities of a Fair card but the defects may have advanced to such a serious stage that the eye appeal of the card has nearly vanished in its entirety.
A Poor card may be missing one or two pieces may, exhibit major creasing that nearly breaks through all the layers of cardboard or it may contain extreme discoloration or dirtiness throughout
that may make it difficult to identify the issue or content of the card on either the front or back. A card of this nature may also show noticeable warping or another type of destructive defect.
