- If not described otherwise, you buy exactly the card you can see on the product pictures.
2.3 What is the condition of the cards?
We use the following grades (and abbreviations) to describe the condition of a card:
- Near Mint (NM)
- Excellent (EX)
- Good (GD)
- Light Played (LP)
- Played (PL)
- Poor (PO)
You will find the condition in the title of the product. It will look like this:
- Channel - Alpha - EX
You will find any important additional information either in the title and/or in the description of the item. For example, whether a card has been signed by the artist, if it has a crease or if any other adjustments have been made.
2.3.1 Near Mint (NM)
A card in Near Mint condition looks as if it has never been played without outer sleeves. Tiny blemishes are allowed, such as a few small white spots at the corners caused by cutting during production. Wear such as scratches are not present and when viewed in daylight the card is clean.
USA: In the USA the designation Near Mint (NM) is also used.
2.3.2 Excellent (EX)
Excellent cards usually have some white spots on the edges and corners. There may also be a few minor scratches on the surface. However, these should not be directly noticeable under normal light conditions.
USA: There is an important distinction to the grading system used in the US. European graded Excellent cards are usually rated Lightly Played (LP) or Slightly Played (SP) in the US. However, European graded Light Played cards are graded (Heavy Played) in America, which often leads to confusion. If in doubt, please send us a message.
2.3.3 Good (GD)
A card in Good condition looks as if it has been played without outer sleeves for a longer period of time, for example at a tournament. Cards that we grade as Good regularly show clear signs of wear in many areas of the card. Therefore, white areas on corners and edges may be pronounced.
In many cases, the surface of the card has a few scratches and can also be slightly dirty. Nevertheless, these may only be normal signs of use. The card will therefore have neither creases nor damage from liquids, such as water.
USA: In the USA, the term Moderately Played (MP) or Light Played (LP) is often used.
2.3.4 Light Played (LP)
A Magic card in Light Played condition looks as if it has been played without outer sleeves for a long period of time. It is important that it is without doubt tournament legal when played with sleeves. Also, the card must not have been altered. Black painted edges or similar are a no-go. Possible whitenings at the edges and borders can be severe and found throughout the card.
USA: In the USA, the term Moderately Played (MP) or Good (GD) is often used.
2.3.5 Played (PL)
A card that has been worn through normal use must not look worse than this in order to be rated as Played. Examples include heavy surface scratches or damage to the surface that is described as “snow-covered”.
The card has not had been tampered with, and may have cracks or be painted, but it is still in very poor condition.
USA: In the USA, the term Very Played (VP) or Heavily Played (HP) is often used.
Anything rated worse than Played is Poor. These cards often have damage caused by something other than “normal” playing with them.
Examples are: Bent cards, blackened edges (“ink” or “inked”), water damage, cracks and the like.
USA: In the USA, Poor (PO) or Damaged (DMG) is also often used.
