This is a SWAP CARD GRADING SYSTEM guide we use throughout our website.
This guide only represents our opinion and does not represent any third party grading. We believe we grade our swap cards and playing cards conservatively (i.e. you may view the quality as higher than our description). We do not guarantee that same or similar grading will be achieved from any other parties.
