The Grading Authority uses an easy-to-understand 1-10 grading scale, with descending increments of one-half point (for example 10, 9.5, 9, 8.5, etc.).
Below is an outline of the TGA grading scale. This TGA grading criterion serves as an outline of our grading process. There may be other factors that come into play when determining the final grade of a card as outlined in the .5 note at the end of the scale.
This card lacks all grading characteristics. Noticeable wear, discoloration, creasing, staining, etc. may all be present. We confirm card to be authentic.
.5 will be deducted from each grade that meets 90% of this standard grade. (i.e. A card shows 90% of the qualities of a 10, it will be graded a 9.5)
