The "A.I.R."Grading Review & Encapsulation Process

Our unique process of the AIR Grading System is what gives us our competitive advantage in the hobby. The process is totally unique to the grading industry and helps set GRADING above and beyond the rest of our competitors.

The AIR Grading System is a unique three part initial Grading Review.

The first part, ANONYMOUS ACCOUNTABILITY, our grading team is unaware of whose item they are reviewing & thus have an ability to remain completely impartial, yet, at the same time, each card is assigned a grading team whose identity is permanently attached to that individual item, while still allowing for outside anonymity, thus creating the ultimate in accountability and leveling the court for every reviewed/graded/encapsulated item.

The second of the three part process is INTERAGENCY and INTEGER based, every item we review is subject to the opinion of multiple independent opinions from within the grading team and from those independent opinions an integer is formed based on the whole number average from the multiple independent reviews.

The third part, REPORT and REVIEW, is complete with an individual serial number (A.I.R.#) The trackable AIR# details the independent reviews from a minimal of 4 sub grades.
