Year Released: 2012
Card Number: 268
Insert Series: Blue Parallel - Machine Numbered 265/350
Grade: PSA 8.5 (Near Mint - Mint+)
NM-MT 8: Near Mint-Mint
A PSA NM-MT 8 is a super high-end card that appears Mint 9 at first
glance, but upon closer inspection, the card can exhibit the
following: a very slight wax stain on reverse, slightest fraying at
one or two corners, a minor printing imperfection, and/or slightly
off-white borders. Centering must be approximately 65/35 to 70/30 or
better on the front and 90/10 or better on the reverse.
Cards that exhibit high-end
qualities within each particular grade, between PSA Good 2 and PSA Mint 9, may
achieve a half-point increase. While PSA graders will evaluate all of the
attributes possessed by a card in order to determine if the card may be eligible,
there will be a clear focus on centering.
Generally speaking, a card must
exhibit centering that is 5-10% better, at minimum, than the lowest % allowed
within a particular grade. It is important to note that there may be cases
where the overall strength of the card, such as the quality of the corners and
print, will give the card the edge it needs despite the fact that it may
exhibit only marginal centering for the grade. This is especially true for
cards that find themselves within the bottom half of the PSA 1-10 scale.
Finally, keep in mind that
qualifiers will not apply to grades that achieve the half-point increase since,
by definition, these cards have to exhibit high-end qualities within the grade
in order to warrant consideration. For example, there will not be cards graded
PSA NM-MT-Plus 8.5 OC or PSA EX-MT-Plus 6.5 PD since the half-point is reserved
for high-end cards within each grade.
