WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF CARD CLEANING?
It is considered best practice to clean your card before submitting it to a grader. Card grading companies (PSA, SGC, BGS..etc) will not clean your card when they receive it. They will grade the card as-is. So, if there are any imperctions, no matter how minor, it will form part of your overall grade. Cleaning your card will put your card in the best position to achieve the highest possible grade.
CAN YOU RESTORE A DAMAGED CARD?
No, we cannot restore damage, such as:
- Bent / soft corners
- Colour issues
- Edge wear
- Surface scratches
DO YOU USE ANY SOLUTIONS, AGENTS OR LIQUIDS?
WILL FINGERPRINTS IMPACT MY GRADE?
Yes, fingerprints and any other imperfections no matter how minor will negatively impact the overall grade of your card. Removing fingerprints, smudges or anything else that may be on the surface of the card will give you a better chance at a higher grade. Remember, your card is going to be encapsulated in plastic, so if you have something visible on the card the only way to clean it is to crack the case open, clean it and then resend it for grading again.
HOW DO I ADD THE CLEANING SERVICE TO MY CARD?
Easy. When you’re filling in the online submission form, just select ‘Yes’ on the “Card Clean” option for the card(s) you want cleaned and we’ll do the rest.
