Posted By: <b>Derek</b><p>Hi, I have a question about cards that have been graded by PSA and SGC. Ive heard that both of these companies grade cards that were removed after being glued to an album. That it does not seem to hurt the grade as long as there is no residue. But what about if they were taped to an album and then the tape came off from water. Do they grade those as well? Or is that different from removing a card that was glued to paper?<br />Thanks guys.

There is some subjectivity to the process.

Posted By: <b>Derek</b><p>So removing tap will not give a card an alteration grade or put it at a 1 if it looked like a 7? or would it grade a 7. What if the card was lighter but had no residew

Posted By: <b>Jimmy Piccuito</b><p>most likley you would get a 1 or 2 graded from the tape damage - unless the tape comes off easy - really depends were the damage is. see the post about paper loss - may help a bit<br /><br />Take care<br /><br />Jimmy
