Near-Mint Condition, definition (to receive our full buy price):
Overall, a Near Mint card we buy has an unmarked surface, crisp corners, unblemished edges and very good centering. The edges should be free from almost all flaws. The card may have up to two or three small dings on its edges that are visible only on very close inspection of the card. The card surface is factory fresh and still glossy, with nearly zero blemishes. We pay full buy price for this.
Played Condition, definition (this receives only 35% of our buy price):
Overall, a Played card we buy will look Near Mint except for a small number of minor flaws from handling. The flaws can include: small dings, small surface scratches, a minor chip, and printing blemishes. It will show minor signs of having been played, or may be Near Mint except for a small ding or chip. The corners will be be crisp but may have a small ding from handling of the card. The card will still appear to be centered, but minor offsets are allowed. The surface will be fresh looking but may have a small scuff or small scratches. We will not buy any card worse than this.
Damaged Condition, definition:
We ask that you do not send damaged cards to us. Damaged cards have flaws that include, but are not limited to: larger dings or chips on corners or edges, worn corners, surface blemishes (dirt, scratches or scuffs), any ink or writing on a card (including artist signatures), dents or creases, centering issues, and more. Please do not send us cards like this.
