For example, I would never state that a card is Near Mint and it looks as if a dog has chewed on the card! Mint (MT) -- A card with four sharp corners, no imperfections or signs of wear. Even cards straight out of the pack do not always grade mint.Near Mint (NM) -- A near-perfect card with perhaps one minor imperfection, such as one blunt corner. The card must have its original gloss. NM cards are the standard by which other grades are usually gauged.
Excellent (EX) -- A card with a few minor imperfections. Some original gloss is lost and the edges show moderate wear. All four corners typically show some wear. A VG card may have a crease, but one that's not severe enough to make the card unattractive.
Most of the original gloss is lost. Good (G), Fair (F), Poor (P) -- A very worn card with many major imperfections.
Collectors use cards of these grades as fillers until better ones can be found. These are perfect for young children.The item "PSA 9 MINT Charizard 4/102 Base Set Holo Pokemon Trading Card" is in sale since Friday, October 1, 2021.
