RH 4,227 Member · Posted October 19, 2020 Share Posted October 19, 2020 Grading exceptional quality, CIB games seems like a bit of a catch-22. If you took an exceptional sealed game, opened it and sent it to WATA for grading, there's a good chance that all of the component parts could be 10.0 quality. However, when WATA goes to grade everything, they have to open the box. This might not affect clamshell games, but when it comes to cardboard, this means that WATA has to damage the box by adding a crease to the folded side of the flap. I assume taking out the box content shouldn't be a problem, but I am assuming that opening the game, even once, will leave a noticeable change to the flap crease and will, thus, ding the grade. So, has there been any real example of a 10.0 graded CIB game, especially that came in cardboard? Can there even be a 10.0? My guess is no, but I'm no expert on the matter. I am curious about it, though. What is likely the highest grade a cardboard boxed game can get CIB? 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
