No one grades tougher than Dean's Cards and our grading in on par with PSA standards. The card was scanned before it was put into a sleeve, to clearly show any possible imperfections that the card may possess. In 2019, we launched grading software, that we use to evaluate the cards that we sell.
While the software will eventually be used to grade most of our inventory, the cards are still reviewed by human eyes to catch any flaws that the software may miss. This grading software was developed to provide far better grading and consistency than can obtained using the human eye. For example, the scan sees the card at 1200 pixels per inch and a person with 20/20 vision sees it at only 338 ppi. One of the unique things about Dean's Cards Grading Standards is that we use "Half-Grades" to identify well-centered cards. Most of these cards appear perfectly centered to the human eye.
For example, a card that grades 6.5 , will have all the corner characteristics and eye appeal of card with a grade 6, and will also appear "perfectly centered", or close to it. The card is then placed in a standard "soft" sleeve, with an open top for easy removal. The Dean's Cards label is placed on the top back of the card sleeve, and is no way affixed to the surface of the card itself. Please note that when images are enlarged there may be instances of vertical lines running through the scans. This is a "dust speck" and it is evident by lines running into the black margins on the top and bottom of the image.If you will give us the opportunity to earn your business, you will be glad that you did.
