Ty Cobb baseball card Grading Vintage Baseball Cards
Vintage baseball cards' value often depends upon their condition, among other things. Professional graders set baseball card values by assigning a rating score to the cards. The major grading companies charge a small fee to grade your sports cards.

The vintage card shown here is professionally graded as a 92 (out of 100) & NM/MT + (near-mint/mint plus), which is nearly perfect. As part of their service, the grading company seals this valuable card in a protective container ... for obvious reasons!
