Determine the condition of the card

In today’s trading card market, condition is a core component of value. Trading cards that are in mint condition tend to be worth more than cards with flaws like centering issues, dinged corners, and creases.

First things first, is the card raw or graded?

If your card is raw, compare it to PSA’s Grading Standards as you sort through PSA’s 1 – 10 grading scale. You will find detailed descriptions of each grade, as well as visual examples to illustrate the criteria for each grade.

Still have questions on condition? For further details, review our free Photograde™ library, which contains high resolution examples of popular cards, arranged grade-by-grade for comparative analysis.

These card condition guidelines will help you approximate each card’s grade.

Tip
If your card is already graded by PSA, simply locate the grade on the label.

Market activity can paint a clear picture of the demand for your card. Demand affects value, and if your card happens to be red hot, expect a lot of activity on the available supply.

Head to PSAcard.com/auctionprices and search for your card. The more refined the query, the more accurate the results. It is best to include the year, manufacturer and subject of your card in your search. If you include the card number, expect All-Star results.

The most recent auction activity – from all the top auction houses like ebay to Heritage – will be displayed. You can refine the results by date, price, grade and more.

Tip
In addition to the final sale price, also check the number of bids on the auction listing. Price and bids combined can show you if there is a strong buyer’s market for your card.
