Most of my Trade Bait lists indicate the condition or grade of each card I have for trade. I value the cards in any trade using the high Beckett value and then applying the percentages indicated parenthetically below. For example, a card with a high Beckett of $100 that is graded GD is valued at $15.
Cards considered to be "star" or "premium" cards (book value of $20 or more) will only be traded for similar star/premium cards; see "High-BV" page.
All cards on my Trade Bait list are available for sale at a negotiated price.
NM Beautiful, any flaw would have to be pretty minor. (100%)
EXMT Great looking card, can be a bit off-center, some minor corner problems, print spots, etc. (75%)
EX No creases! No miscuts! A nice collectible card with some flaws that are not serious. Minor corner creasing OK. (50%)
VGEX This is the highest I will grade a card with very minor surface creases (wrinkles) or 100/0 centering on the front. (40%)
VG A decent looking card that would be EX or better if not for one or more noticeable creases, or just a card with some scrapes, minor stains, that sort of thing. Centering problems are OK, even very slight miscuts. (30%)
GDVG In between VG and GD. (20%)
GD Still a collectible card, but will have creases, stains, corner rounding, other flaws. Insignificant pen marks are OK. A bit of miscutting is OK here. (15%)
FR A bit nasty looking and beat up, but still good as a filler, may have fading, noticeable scuffing, minor writing, tiny pieces missing, etc. May be noticeably miscut or have tons of creases, some of which may be serious. (6%)
PR Quite nasty, serious writing, pieces missing, horrendous stains, and other fatal flaws! (2%)
