The Grading Process

Step 1 - Submission:

Begin by choosing the card/cards you wish to have graded. Decide whether you would like custom or standard banners then put the card's name, set and number in the notes box at checkout.

Step 2 - Send in your cards: 

Make sure to protect your cards by packaging them securely. It is essential that you use protective sleeves and top loaders to prevent your cards being damaged during transit. It is also recommended to bubble wrap your cards and package them in a box rather than a bubble mailer.

You will need to send your cards to:

PTG HIDEOUT'S

263 Cleethorpes Road,

Cleethorpes,

DN31 3BH

Step 3 - Professional Assessment:

Our grading process adheres to industry-standards and guidelines, ensuring accuracy and consistency within the whole process.

Once your cards arrive, our highly skilled team of graders will meticulously examine each card, taking into account factors such as:

  • Centering (checking the boarders are even) 

  • Corners and edges (checking for damage and whiting)

  • Surface quality (checking for scratches, dents and white spots)

Step 4 - Grading Report:

Once assessment is complete, you will receive a detailed grading report for each card. The details in the report allow you to understand the reasons for the grade you receive.

Each report will include:

  • The overall grade given

  • A break down of the grade given for each factor and the attributes which contributed to this grade

  • A unique identification number

Step 5 - Secure Return:

With all the hard work done, your newly graded cards will be packaged with utmost care to ensure they are secure and protected during shipping so that they can be safely returned to you.
