Rare Edition combines both a computer's detailed review of a card and a human's understanding of what should and shouldn't be on a card. Without our AI and CV tech, it would be extremely time-consuming to identify every area of a card that may be damaged; Without the human element to classify and categorize damage, an AI / CV approach can be overly-aggressive or mis-categorize card features as damage.
Rare Edition blends these two approaches to create a consistent grade, and our grading team reviews every card grade to ensure that it matches our grading formulas and rules.
Rare Edition does not grade unlicensed or fan-made cards.
Rare Edition cannot grade Pokemon or other TCG cards at this time, but we are excited to offer this in the near future! Since our cases are manufactured to extremely tight specifications, it's not possible to encase TCG cards in our current case design. A new version of our case that can fit TCG cards is being designed, and once it is available we will happily grade all standard-sized TCG cards, including Pokemon, Magic, Digimon, or other card games.
