No, That’s not near mint


Kanki-8362

Moderately played if I had to mark it


JoFlo520

Yeah even lightly played is pushing it let alone nm


AverageJoe-2020

Definitely moderately, if you wanna be generous LP but I wouldn’t say HP since it’s just edge ware


Uno_mano55

Maybe even Heavily Played


the_t_hole

Not hp, if you look at TCGPlayers official condition guidelines this is clearly mp


Uno_mano55

Interesting, I’ll have to check those out!


Yuyukoyouji_osu

Definitely get a refund


terayonjf

Thats very far from near mint


battletor7

Yeah I’m returning this. It looks even worse now that I look at the pictures.


JBCoup

Return 100% seller knows what they’re doing Yucky


kulalolk

To be fair, the front looks 98% perfect. Trace wear on bottom left corner, but thats really it. Maybe they just didn’t check the back. Still, get a refund OP, not cool.


bellyjellykoolaid

Its even scratched up on the front what are you talking about. Right above the eye slightly to the left, giant crease bottom right, the foil parts are chipping and scratched


kulalolk

Yeah I see that, but you have to admit the front looks a million times better than the back. Not justifying the sale, just saying it’s possible this is could the genuine stat that happens due to human error.


Sly_Shadow7

The condition of that card is dogshit. "98% perfect" is not even close. No excuse is valid.


goku166

I just went through this too. Card was in perfect condition with a crease in it listed as LP. Sucks you can’t see pictures. The seller in my case knew what they were doing too. I feel like some people use TCG because you don’t need to provide a pic

Monsters9141

what a weird comment, being possibly sneaky and deceiving is yucky behavior

Monsters9141

Dude did you make a new account to comment?


[deleted]

[удалено]


Monsters9141

Wait, who’s offended? I just said it’s weird to make a comment over someone using a word that fits pretty fine. Also, synonyms of yucky are things like repelling and unpleasant. I could say that fits just fine for that type of attitude the seller displays. Edit - hey man, I have no idea why you let a comment hurt you so bad you edited it multiple times and then blocked me… it’s okay. Breathe.


Square-Can-7031

That bitch is moderately played at best


Final-Promise-8288

That’s moderately played, with the corners being completely destroyed I would even consider it damaged even without considering the small crease on it. I would get my money back OP


battletor7

Yeah I just contacted the seller. I don't know how TCG player deals with refunds but I am going to make sure I get my money back.


TheChineseG0vernment

I’ve never had a problem getting money back from tcgplayer


DoYahWanna

Most sellers will refund it with little or no question asked. They'd rather not fight it.


Psychological-Park-6

I agree with this.


akricketson

Yeah I feel like it would fall into damaged with all corners. Heavily played maybe. Add the crease in?


KAROLY619

Happy cake day


VortexTornado

Nah definitely not damaged. Moderately played.


hypnosiix

I agree it is MP but you got a weird definition of “completely destroyed” lol


fuzzblood

Moderately played AT BEST


TheJaice

I’d be pissed if I ordered an LP copy and this arrived.


cjholland5

Even if the back didn’t have all the whitening, the messed up corner on the bottom left is enough to make it not near mint. That takes an 8/9 to a 6 almost instantly


bigdurf

Even with tcg players loose condition guidelines that wouldn't be near mint.


East-Start5577

Not even close to NM by TCGPLAYER standards. Click around their website and somewhere is a guide for the rating of cards. This falls well below the threshold for MN.


Deathstar_TV

Mint? With whitening on the back like it’s 20 years old? Nahhhhh. Maybe like a 4-6 range


Venerex13

Nope that is MP at best.


An_okay_fellow

Near destroyed lol


Animedude83

That's mod play to me, but I guess you could argue light play, but defenitly not near mint.


schneebeli

yeah no, that is heavy played in my books


MarksmanMarold

That Is played


Professor_Shuk

Honestly that’s probably moderately played


TCGJakeOfficial

Most definitely not near mint


mike_dingus

That’s spearmint


Extreme_Confidence76

Naw that’s deff LP. Borderline MP


Zombierobo

Heavy played, I would be angry if that came over as moderately played.


saxlax10

That's MP all day


Stormycide

thats rough.. was it a new seller?


DoubleJ292

I am also curious if you bought from a reputable seller or a new one OP?


battletor7

Yeah I didn't even realize the seller had only 6 sales but 100% feedback. This is my first time buying off of TCG player so I guess I learned my lesson. However I didn't think it would be this bad lol


xMF_GLOOM

Yeah you need to do the sellers that have 10,000+ feedback with 99%+ positive feedback. I’ve ordered 100+ cards from TCGPlayer and have never gotten anything that was not Near Mint.


Art_Local

Even Lightly played would be a big stretch


Advik_

Ayo wtf lmao I was expecting like a tiny white dot or something that card is played as fuck lol


ShopCollectibles

That is very clearly moderately played. I am sorry you had some a bad experience in TCG Player.


ketoboi1

No back is horrible..id be upset too if I was expecting nm


michaelsean09

I had a similar thing happen recently. I boughtsome jungle cards to fill holes on my binder that were supposed to be near mint. The buyer tried to claim that near mint means different things as the cards get older. Tcgplayer support disagreed and I got my full refund.


Voloster

Closer to “near damaged”


Travisgrr

not close to NM


Rasnall

People don’t know how to mark their cards or just want to lie for more money. This is played


el_chapotle

Good reason to buy vintage off private sellers on eBay vs shitty companies on TCGPlayer. Spend a couple bucks more, support individual collectors, actually get what you pay for.


MuddyKittens

Oh no... Oh boy... I am at loss for words


[deleted]

wait what's ex, I only started collecting in late black and white/ early x and y


Benzo331

This is my biggest fear and the reason why I don't buy online.


Monte_20

The white edges would be pushing it, but it’s the grime that makes it a definite NO.


King_of_Kings89

What was rating on the seller? I never have this issue with highly rated sellers.


iamnatecg

Yeah I say MP


Just_some_dude5

Awe man sorry about your luck there :(


hoezays

Dont think its near mint but i always buy with expectations of beat up card unless theres pics


Oblivion_phico

That’s def near mint if Near mint was a 7 and that’s being generous


AnonymousAzrael

Is this mod play or light play?


xMF_GLOOM

No, very clearly not. Which seller did you purchase this from? Check your Order History. Leave them a negative review please.


TheCringeRoom

You are absolutely not being picky, that is far from nm


stevebak90

Near Mint from the front, Heavily Played in the back 😂


CBthePrince

That’s LP at best lol. Still a cool card, hope they didn’t charge you too much for it!


hartjesz07

Not at all, that's MP.


PuzzleheadedTotal770

Yeah that's not near mint. It's even stipulated in their terms and conditions for refunds for near mint


TNT3149_

Looks moderately played tbh man. Complain and get a refund


GrinderMurphy

You can check their standards on the website. This definitely doesn’t fit their description of NM or LP.


Serikan

That looks like morderate to light play, leqning towards moderate


Missbreezy79

Ya def not mint


FullSidalNudity

Yeah NM is not entire whitening around the edges of the whole card


[deleted]

Not at all. That bad boi is hell highly played.


TomCos22

Get yourself a refund. That is not even LP its MP.


Roshi813

Looks Lightly to moderately played to me


Gibbydoesit

hell no that’s nowhere near mint lol


Blade7353

not even close to near mint


Purple9ZH

That's Mod, maybe LP if you're trading with a friend on a good day


darthmadeus

Not at all!! That is NO WAY near mint. That’s moderate play at best


SlayersScythe

My immediate reaction was to say ew. That is rough. Hope you get your money back.


libertaliagamesupply

Nah that’s Lp


stevejr99

i would call that MP


DevelopmentOrganic24

If I bought a near mint card and got this, I’d be pissed. I’ve seen a lot of people say TCG has good customer service. I would honestly send this back and get a refund.


Rean-Schwarzer7

Mp


Broyalty007

This is played forsure. Nowhere near near mint. Seller tried to "play" you


Mufasa_the_Cat

Vintage mint?


PPGN_DM_Exia

Even if this was marked as LP, I'd consider asking for a refund. I've ordered MP cards that looked better than this.


MTGAnon69

if your a seller on tcgplayer with 100% feedback, Yup! especially if TCG Direct (c)


EA705

That’s not even close to NM


PresentationLoose422

90% of my NM cards are like darn near perfect. The odd one arrives like this. Hate it when you don’t get what you paid for the first time.


BroGreekMachineYea

More like near moderately played.


helping_phriendly

No, you’re not being picky. The white edges on this make it well played.


Riquun

Heavy played for sure


6senseposter

The back is pretty bad.


Raiganop

I don't see a mint near the card.


Ok_Professional4736

Clear cut MP baby 🤦🏼


DuckyLouu

SO MUCH WHITENING. NEAR MINT? More like heavily used.


Clarent16

Yikes! Buying single cards from TCG and Amazon is really scary. I stick to eBay where the listing is singular and has multiple pics of back and front. That is definitely not near mint. Front looks okay enough, back is way too rough.


gypsyhussle

No, lol that’s not even close to Near Mint


Luxanator36

That’s not nm


ZCreed19

That’s such a beautiful card 😍😍😍


AshDaLawrence

That’s not nm


WyPay101

If that was a PSA submittal I'd say a 7 or 8


Koizata-

Definitely not near mint oof hopefully you can get a refund


TBonez8111

Mp


meccafork

Damn, if it was cheap I’d just keep it but I’m guessing this wasn’t cheap


Southern_Box_9803

That’s near trash 🗑


TheBananaCzar

That's moderately played at best


Banchi_Banch

That is NOT near mint and you need to return it and get your money back. TCGPlayer will lose their credibility.


GundamChao

idk, looks not TOO bad to me- \*sees the picture of the back side of it\* OH MY GOODNESS! SQUIDWARD!!!


fatguy925

White Edging is light played to Moderately played. This looks Moderately Played. Since light played is usually 3 small edging, that u can view, as this has a 360 edging.


Clutch_Lux

Far from near mint that corner alone is atrocious


Dionysus60

That is played. Not even good!


Shane-OFx

I grade cards at my job (no where near an expert though lol) I’d call this an overall Mildly Played. It could make an argument for both Lightly Played or even Heavily Played which to me makes it an overall Mildly Played


Tricky_crow_989

The holo is clean and it has swirls so some one may want it


Durty_slav

That bottom left corner... Nope not mint. Lightly played at best.


MegaAscension

That's moderately played if I labeled it. Nowhere close to near mint.


Epic805

This is not even close to near mint.


Brando7567

Definitely not


Sangwangtutu

I'm fairly new here but those marks around the edge on the back and the bottom left corner are really noticeable. I would not agree that this is near mint.


hys_rag3

Definitely not near mint, probably somewhere around moderately played


nickvicious

that is moderately played at best


fcuriel087

You aren't picky Tcgplayer must be blind


fcuriel087

You aren't picky Tcgplayer must be blind😒


suspicious__banana

Hell no. Not picky at all


defythevenu

LMFAO I was legit expecting to debate you but no way I'd that near mint that's moderately played to me.


King_Marlon10K

Not mint, not near mint, not lp, not damaged, not hp, this is borderline MP.


L1t3z0ut

That crease at the bottom right of the card gives it all away, as well with the big white dots on kyogre, and the white line below his right (our left) big white mark


Virtual-Frosting-353

No, that is terrible!


HOLLANDSYTSE

Don't trust the sellers evaluation, trust your own you can't see everon photo's. Always ask to see the back as well, much easier to spot damage on that side


Mister101DK

Not in the vicinity of Nar Mint.


Quatol

MP at the very least… smh


WildCuty

100% not near mint. Near mint is basically pack fresh with maybe a tinny bit of whitening but that's modertly played


BlueEyed_Bull

Thats about PSA 5-6 id say, far from near mint though


TwoThirtyTw0

Nope, that's MP.


bearkneebandit

Maybe like an already chewed on mint


SkateSessions

MP at the best. HP to some


INeedSwagbucks

Seller purposely sold it in NM because of the front, would say its NM front LP back.. sad sellers, always ask for pictures btw


Bubbleftw

The BL corners peeled up. Honestly…


solocollection

always ask for pictures


No-Tooth-1279

Look more like near good to me :/


[deleted]

[удалено]


TejasSiempre

Did you see the corner and the back? Also the white lines on the surface. NM is a PSA8 this is maybe a 5


ChiWhiteSox247

Moderately played if anything. Not in poor shape but not NM


hamstertitan_5

Near mint? That looks more like Psa 10, never been opened, kissed by god to me..


TalosTheTuna

TCG didn’t have it listed as that, the seller using TCG are a middle man had it listed as that


Arch3_

The sides look busted to me


Sly_Shadow7

The absolutely visible damage on the front/bottom left of the card makes it MP/HP. Nowhere near nm, get your money back.


BadWaluigi

LOL, so they 1) made a typo 2) genuinely don't understand quality terms and or 3) are straight up liars


badheaven22

No that is not near mint. Have it returned and request a refund.


Blackatoa1

Nah man send that shit back bro. That’s like moderately played with


Imansays

Definitely some sort of played


MormonMagic

Absolutely moderately played at best. This is EXACTLY why I stopped buying Pokémon on TCGPlayer. Everyone under grades their cards. I’ve bought “Near Mint” Jungle/Base/Fossil foils for my daughter’s collection and I’ve literally been sent cards that were folded in half. TCGPlayer isn’t good place to buy unless photos are included.


Konflick

corners are dinged up would say this is MP


KingKalset

As a seller on TCGPLAYER, I've had some people who were very picky. I had someone request a refund on half of their order because "the holo patterning clearly had a lot of pressure on it during shipping. See, these exact cards from another seller look a little different." I just refunded the order, it's worth more to have a good review than to have a sale of a few bucks.


Balitonic

Nowhere near NM


phortnyte_plaiior

hell nah!!!


Petterblakk

Thats played af


CanadianCharicards

They must have had a mint nearby


YeahCherIDoBelieve

Damn this is garbage.


Carmen_San_Diageo

That is NOT NM.


bigport55

I'll be honest, when I'm buying cards singles or what ever you can never be to picky. It's your money and he is trying to sale it to you. If you like it or what something else you are not being picky.


michelzon

That’s poor quality


Gxdsey

Moderately played for sure. There’s a small dent in the bottom left corner & also a fair amount of scratches on the surface of the card (white lines on Kyogre). I would inform the seller that it’s condition was not as advertised and request to return it for a full refund if you want. If you still want to keep the card, kindly ask for a partial refund so that you aren’t overpaying for the card. You’re not being too picky; you’d actually be doing the seller a favor by showing them why it’s important to include accurate descriptions and details in their listings.


Aromatic-Ad9814

its so bad, leave a 1 star


yingsty

Definitely not nm, half the people who sell on their don’t know what they’re doing. Reach out and try to get your money back from the seller. If you can’t take it up with TCGplayer themselves, they have great customer service


Background_Cress_432

At BEST maybe lightly played but that’s being generous. Moderate to Heavy is how I’d rate it, I try to be strict before posting anything on there


Deadly_Pryde

That's not NM. MP is probably the more accurate, but most would list this as LP


adultanimetube

wtf


Mysterious-Slide-827

I'm pretty new to cards and I would not call that near mint


SicarusIcarus

No you're not too picky, that's mod play. Too much whitening on the edges to be near mint.


RumanHitch

Even the art is scratched,LP for sure,not more than that


mikahbet

Mp especially with that bottom left corner, sorry bro.


saurontu

That’s heavily played, the whole border is white and the holo is scratched to shit


Mguerra6

Mod played for sure.


reelteen

I'm not 100% sure, but I think TCGPlayer doesn't verify condition before a seller posts it, they just have guidelines. So if someone posted it and claimed NM, get a refund for it, because TCGPlayer would agree


PokemonPaul606

Def HP


hunter10nelson

Tcgplayer is a ripoff. That’s not near mint in my opinion. Always try to reach out and request photos from the seller. That may help in the future.


RedProtoman

No that shit got beat up like that woman that got stomped out by the elephant and then Fatalitied again out of her casket.


spankacrocodile

Definitely picky. This is clearly black label 10/10/10/10. /s Return it asap! That is moderately played imo


joethebomb715

And that is why I don’t buy cards on TCG anymore even with their low prices
