The Importance of grading accurately as Buyer, Collector or Player...
- Peace of Mind - Doesn't the feeling of getting an item from a seller that isn't as described cause more than just wasted time? Educate yourself before purchasing any collectible.
- Time - Probably the most important reason to educate yourself about grading is time. You will find yourself spending less time returning or being disappointed with your items, by asking for a quality scan from dealers or other collectors. Be sure to ask questions about the card specifically before buying. Both you and the seller will be leaving positive feedback on a transaction more often with proper communication.
- Value - We all want to feel like we got a good deal or a good price. But what's more important is that we got the best value. Understanding grading conditions, will ensure that you got the best value each and every time.
- Preservation - Collectors understand that preserving their collection is essential for long term value. Grading and authentication ensures the collectibles you purchased are sonically encased, preserving them for a lifetime, where generations to come will enjoy them!
The Importance of grading accurately as a Seller or Dealer...
- Reputation - Keeping buyers happy is one the most important part to selling. Learning about grading and describing item(s) accurately is vital to repeat business. Be sure to include large, quality scans when listing an item to ensure a positive buying experience for your clients.
- Increased Sales - Buyers, collectors, and players will pay more for quality condition cards. The premiums will increase sales revenues and open other markets for your business. Imagine, buyers purchasing multiple items versus one or two singles?
- Advertising and Marketing - By having exposure to the higher quality pieces, you will attract buyers from other markets. More exposure to other markets organically grows your business's other services, such as tournaments or show events.
