Where applicable, we put a lot of care into grading each and every comic book and vintage toy for sale. We've got plenty of experience in the hobby to be able to fairly estimate grade. We heavily rely on the Overstreet Comic Book Grading Guide.
Please be aware that, in the end, our grading method may not match that of a professional grading company like CGC, CBCS, and AFA. Therefore, if you were to submit a non-graded comic purchased from Bedo's to a third-party grading service, we will not guarantee that you will receive the same grade as that which we have assigned.
Also, if you strongly feel that the item you purchased is overgraded by a significant amount (1.5+ points), please contact us with your concerns so we can resolve. Though we will stand by our assessment of each item, we aim to provide the highest level of customer service and do our best to ensure your satisfaction. We will at the very least hear you out and discuss.
The table below is our grading scale for comic books and magazines:
|Gem Mint||Gem Mint||10.0|
|Near Mint / Mint||NM/MT||9.8|
|Near Mint +||NM+||9.6|
|Near Mint -||NM-||9.2|
|Very Fine / Near Mint||VF/NM||9.0|

Toys & Playsets
As with a majority of sites that sell vintage toys and playsets, we use the C-scale system for grading. It is the universally accepted standard for grading toys.
