On the online GradeReport® of each CCC graded card, a legend allows to understand the impact of each defect.
Legend of the GradeReport®
- The type of defect is more important than the quantity of annotations.
Example: A single mention "P3" will have a greater impact on the rating than dozens of mentions "R1 and "R2".
- On the legend, the impacts are given as an indication and can vary.
The grading of collectibles is complex: many special cases exist. For these, the impact may be different from the one presented on the legend.
Grading of factory defects by CCC Grading
Our experts know perfectly when a defect on a card is a result of factory manufacturing.
This is because new cards (such as Pokémon, Yu-Gi-Oh or MTG) often have factory defects such as :
- Print Lines
- D.U.I = Imperfect Factory Cut (Corners & Sides)
- Stains or printing defects
- Crease lines due to factory rollers
- Factory Silvering
At CCC Grading, we minimize the impact of all factory defects on the grading. However, they are not overlooked.
As an example, a "Pr.L" (Print Line) area only takes 0.5 points off the surface grade.
