Charizard 11/108 REVERSE HOLO XY Evolutions PSA 10 GEM MINT Pokemon Graded Card
This card has been professionally graded by Professional Sports Authenticator (PSA) and sealed inside of a protective plastic case.
A “grade” is a numerical value that a paid expert assigns to a collectible trading card after it has been thoroughly examined from every angle and determined that it is original and unaltered. The PSA grade number corresponds to the quality of the card's condition.
PSA authenticates both sports and non-sports trading cards across all eras. A series of PSA experts review the card for authenticity. If genuine, PSA looks for evidence of doctoring, such as re-coloring or trimming. PSA experts then grade the condition of each card on a scale of 1-10, with 10 being best. After grading, the card is encapsulated in a tamper-evident, sonically-sealed case. These hard plastic cases provide protection from pressure and most damage. A label within the case displays the card's pertinent information and unique certification number.
PSA-certified trading cards often sell for premium prices due to the strength and credibility of the PSA brand. PSA has certified many of the most valuable trading cards in the world. These are sought after by serious collectors world-wide. Top graded cards are often worth, as well as sell for, staggering amounts of money.
