What We Grade
Cards that have a thickness of 20pt to 55pt.
Not sure how thick your cards are?
Download a digital card thickness guide from BCW Supplies and check your cards against the printed guide.
Got thicker cards? Don't worry!
Support for thicker (70+pt) cards is coming in the near future.
Sport and Non-Sport Cards (non-TCG /CCG)
At this time Rare Edition is accepting sport cards and non-sport cards. Sport cards include Baseball, Basketball, Football, Hockey, Boxing, Wrestling, MMA, Golf, Tennis, or other sport cards, while non-sport cards include Star Wars, Marvel, movie cards, or other non-TCG cards.
Standard square-corner, 2.5" by 3.5" sized cards
Most modern and ultra modern cards are a standard size of 2.5" by 3.5" with four sharp corners, but many vintage and non-standard cards may be significantly larger or smaller. Rare Edition only supports standard card sizes at this time, but expects to support other sizes in the near future.
Be an authentic and unaltered card.
Trimmed, recolored, restored, pressed, or otherwise altered cards will not be graded and may be returned without a grade. Any inauthentic or not genuine cards sent to Rare Edition will still incur a grading fee.
What about autographs on cards?
Many card manufacturers (Panini, Topps, etc.) provide authenticated autographs from athletes or celebrities. Rare Edition will grade the quality of a card's autograph and include that grade on the label and grade report. Rare Edition does not guarantee the authenticity of any autograph, nor does Rare Edition authenticate the autograph itself on the card.
