PSA Graded Cards

There are 6 “qualifiers” which contribute to the way a card is graded by PSA. The two most important are “marks," which includes any marks of writing on the card, and “miscut” which includes any outstanding mistakes made in the process of making the card or making the card “atypical.” The four other qualifiers that PSA lists as “optional” are “off center," “staining,” “print defect,” and “out of focus.” These four are not required to be used by PSA graders.
