In addition the card may have extreme discoloration, mark/marks, wrinkles, staining, paper loss etc... A LOW GRADE card can include GOOD, FAIR or POOR grades. Please note if a card looks too nice for the grade, there is probably a reason why.We can't possibly explain every flaw in the title/description on 50,000+ cards, but they are graded accurately. It isn't realistic to expect a card that looks NM in the scan to be NM if we grade VG or VG-EX not to have a crease, wrinkle or another flaw. We grade the technical grade to include centering and other issues. We provide 2 high quality scans of the front and back of the card and those scans are part of the description.
