    MTG Card Condition Guide

    Near Mint (NM)

    Near Mint cards should show minimal to no wear but may have some minor imperfections. These cards can range from 'Mint' to “Near Mint”.

    • A few light nicks or dings
    • Light minor edge wear
    • Light corner wear
    • Minor scratch or scuff
    • Other minor imperfection
    • Too many imperfections will cause a card to be graded Slightly Played.

    Foils in Near Mint condition should show minimal to no wear and also should have minimal to no ‘clouding’, scratches or scuffs on the front side of the card.

    Slightly Played (SP)

    Slightly Played cards can show minor wear and more of the same imperfections as Near Mint cards. Slightly Played cards can also have minor scratches and scuffs on the front and back from play wear. No additional imperfections for this category.
