Grading Without the Mystery

If you've struggled to understand the "why" behind card grades in the past, Edge Grading was created with you in mind.

  • How important is the centering of a sports card? How is it calculated?
  • Is the condition of the back of my card worth as much to the final grade as the condition of the front?
  • If one corner is slightly worn but the rest of the card is flawless can the card still receive a grade of 10?

As lifelong card collectors who have wrestled with the same concerns we have designed a comprehensive, easy-to-understand card grading system that gives clear answers for questions like these and dozens more. We also take ultra-high-resolution photos of the surfaces, edges, and corners of every card we grade so that full transparency is readily available for every future trade and purchase involving a card graded by Edge.
