Collects:  

NBA, NHL, NASCAR, Star Wars, History, Military, DC Comics, Olympics, whatever interests me

Current project is trying to get at least one card of everyone to ever get one for NBA, NHL and NASCAR. Also working on getting at least one example of every set ever for the above sports. (Wantlists on Cardboard History)

At the moment, attempting to dial back on the hobbies so I can fulfill my lifelong dream of classic car ownership.

I have some health problems that make it challenging for me to get to my trade stash. It makes me a slow trader as there are some days when I'm simply in too much pain to access the boxes. My health problems are not transferable so you do not need to fear catching anything from trading with me.

CARD CONDITION REFERENCE:

cut & paste the following:

http://www.cycleback.com/1800s/beginners.html

Condition of cards:

Mint No flaws, the perfect card. Four perfect corners, 55/45 or better centering, smooth edges, original color and gloss, no print spots, color or focus imperfections. A professionally graded mint card receives a large premium in price, often 200% or much more than Near Mint prices quoted in price guides. Many of the cards pictured in this book do not even in exist in this grade, and Mint examples would sell for lots of money. Gem Mint is the absolutely perfect card, considered higher than Mint. For example, for all the 1909-11 T206s out there, only a handful or so are Gem Mint.

Near Mint-Mint (Nrmt-Mt) Close, but not a Mint card. Centering must be 60/40 or better. There may be a minor flaw with the card such as a slight 'touch' (a light point of wear where the card was bumped or touched), the picture slightly out of focus, or a slight color imperfection. Nrmt-Mt cards also receive a premium in price over a Near Mint card. This premium is not as high as a Mint card. Again the cards from this book are rarely found in this high of grade. Cards from the 1990's are regularly found in this grade

Near Mint (Nrmt) Close, but not a Near Mint-Mint (Nrmt-Mt) card. Its centering can't be worse than 70/30. One of the following imperfections is allowable: very slight touch to two or three corners, slight wear to the edge, minor print spots or color imperfections. This is the standard grade which cards are measured buy in the hobby. The prices quoted in most books are for Near Mint cards.

[*TCDB #1 Bending OK*][**TCDB #2 Centering OK, NO miscuts**][*** TCDB #3 Corners OK, Minor chipping, dinging***] 

Excellent-Mint (ExMt) Card may have visible surface wear or a printing defect which does not detract from its overall appearance. Corners may have slight fraying. The picture may be slightly out of focus. The card may show loss of original gloss or have a minor wax stain on the back. Centering must be 80/20 or better.

[*TCDB #1 Bending OK*][**TCDB #2 Centering OK, NO miscuts**][*** TCDB #3 Corners OK, Minor chipping, dinging***] 

Excellent (Ex): Centering must be 80/20 or better, with four fuzzy corners. It may also have rough edges, minor discoloration, print spots or focus imperfections.

[*TCDB #1 Bending OK*][**TCDB #2 Centering OK, NO miscuts**][*** TCDB #3 Corners OK, Minor chipping, dinging***] [**** TCDB #4 Wrinkles OK****] > Fading, UV Damage <

Very Good (Vg): This card shows wear, but still retains some attractiveness. Corners may be somewhat rounded. There may be edge wear, border discoloration, hairline creases.

[*TCDB #1 Bending OK*][**TCDB #2 Centering OK, NO miscuts**][*** TCDB #3 Corners OK, Minor chipping, dinging***] [****TCDB #4 Creases****]

Good (Gd), Fair (Fr), Poor (Pr): The bottom rung of cards. Good is the best and Poor is the worst. A Good card has significant wear, such as severe corner rounding, creasing, fading, staining or other problems. Altered or retouched cards will fall into this category). A Good card still retains some attractiveness. A Poor card has extreme problems, such as a significant part of it is missing, or ink or paint has marred it. The difference between a Fair and a Poor card, is that a fair card has some semblance of appeal while a Poor card is utterly repulsive

[*TCDB #1 Bending OK*][**TCDB #2 Centering OK, NO miscuts**][*** TCDB #3 Corners OK, Minor chipping, dinging***] [****TCDB #4 Creases][*****TCDB #5 Tape/Glue/Pinholes*****][******TCDB #6 Trimming******] 

Additional Factors:

TCDB Factors - Moisture ~ Bricking ~ Poor presentation in Album

 

Some cards are given a grade between grades. For example ExMt is really a grade between Ex and Nrmt. GdVg is a grade between Gd and Vg. VgEx is a grade between Vg and Ex.

* * * *

Some cards are described with qualifiers. For example, a card may be graded as Nrmt off center 0/100 left/right. This means that a card would be Nrmt but is off center. It is not a Nrmt card.
