How bad of shape does a card have to be for it to be considered worthless? Or damaged?

How bad can it be to still be considered worth something?

It really depends on how old the card it. The older the card the more forgiving they are with flaws in the card. Now that does'nt mean they will get a good grade.

For a 1983 or older card if it is in near mint condition which means it may have a slight flaw it will still be worth 100% of it's value while anything above 1988 has to be nearly perfert to get the total worth. If you have an older card that is perfert which is called mint or gem mint if it is graded it can be worth up to 300% of it's listed value. If you have an older card in pretty rough shape it can still be worth 20% to 30% as long as it does'nt have any creases in it. That's really rounded corners and such but finding someone that would want to buy it is a different story. As far as value gos it all what someone else will pay for it. I dont' think I have EVER seem anything sell for what the price guide says it is worth.
