Good Games grading guidelines

Good Games TCG grades are aligned to the industry standard in order to ensure whether you are buying or selling to us there are no surprises.

Near Mint (NM)

Cards graded at Near Mint have little to no damage.

These cards still have their sheen. Minor corner whitening or surface clouding may be allowed if the damage is only seen under very close inspection.

Lightly Played (LP)

Lightly Played cards are those that have been gently treated, but have some small defects.

This includes minor edge/corner wear, minor surface clouding, small scratches or indents. Factory damage like roller marks or indents will cap the card at LP condition. 

Moderately Played (MP)

Cards with noticeable wear on edges/corners/surface will fall into the MP category.

This includes significant border whiting, moderate creasing including shuffle warping, heavy surface clouding. 

Heavily Played (HP) / Damaged

HP/Damaged cards will show severe wear on edges/corners/surface.

Widespread whiting, creases, scuffing, as well as water damage, inking, and dirt build-up all contribute to a card being placed in the HP/Damaged category.
