Default Good vs. Very Good

What are the essential differences between a GD and VG card?

Default g vg

pat,
the definition offered on SGC's website is what i go by---and they do a pretty good job of utilizing their own definition when they grade the cards.

best,

barry

Default ok

I'm quite familiar with the grading standards but the distinction between GD and VG has always been a bit blurry to me compared to other grade categories...

I always think of it in terms that a good card can have a crease or two. A VG card really shouldn't (unless it's a tiny crease in a corner).

amount of rounding corner wear...how heavy is the crease...amount of paper loss. each case can decide between G and VG.

I agree with Anthony for the most part...

Good - up to two creases

Very Good - a small wrinkle or corner crease

BUT for the most part I would say the difference is eye appeal. At least should be!

good vs very good

either one is ok for me because a good card or very good card fills a spot in my collection that needed to be filled. Both are probably in my price range-when the grade goes higher than vg you are leaving my price range.

I hate paper loss-its bad on the front but unacceptable on the back- unless its so small or really does not effect the ad. I can deal with round corners and creases.
If I needed a spot filled bad enough, I would still buy a card with paper loss with the seller saying "gd maybe vg".
