How Sports Cards Are Graded

Even the most sought-after sports cards can vary in worth based on their condition. Card graders, like the Professional Sports Authenticator (PSA), will assign a grade of 1-10 to each of these attributes, then combine them to give the card a final grade of 1-10.

Here are the main attributes that are considered when assigning a grade:

Centering – a card is considered to have good centering when the border sizing is equal on the left, right, top, and bottom.

Corners – corners are arguably the most important and heavily inspected element when grading a card. A card with four perfectly sharp corners will score the highest in this category. Any imperfection will move the card down the grading scale.

Edges – a card with sharp edges (or borders) without any signs of dents or discolorations will be rated higher on the grading scale.

Surface – this refers to the condition of the cardboard. Things to look out for are stains, scratches, printing imperfections, creases, and more.
