Even though card grading is somewhat subjective and varies between grading companies, 1st graded adheres strictly to our own very specific grading criteria. We guarantee an accurate grade and a fantastic finished product. However, we do not guarantee a matching cross grade with another company. Just as cards vary, so do individual graders, and we can't guarantee that those other guys will follow the same detailed grading criteria.
We maintain the highest standards of integrity and authenticity. CUSTOM MADE CARDS, REPRINTS OR OTHER COUNTERFEIT CARDS will not be graded and you will be charged $5 for each of this type of card you submit. They will be returned to you ungraded and not encased. We will not grade anything other than authentic cards. This policy is effective immediately for any submission postmarked after March 19, 2021.
We do not grade jersey cards at this time.
