How to get a Gold Label ?
In order to receive a Gold Label, your card must score 10 on three criteria and 9.5 on a single criterion.
Your label will be golden with the indication "Pristine" ("Parfait" for french cards).
Gold Label cards retain the "Pristine" designation because the single flaw remains invisible without careful and accurate inspection.
It can be a tiny off-centering, a single white spot, or a surface with a minor defect (impurity for example).
How to get a Black Label ?
To get a Black Label, your card must score 10 on all of the grading criteria.
A card in this condition is necessarily out of the ordinary, no micro-imperfections are tolerated.
Very few brand-new cards coming out of the factory are able to obtain a Black Label because of off-centering and the numerous micro-imperfections of machining.
Black Label cards often have a very high market value.
