When buying ungraded (raw) baseball cards, the condition of the card is your
primary concern. Here are some minimal guidelines that affect a card's grade.

Centering: Both the image (card front) and the text (card back) need to be
as centered as possible.

Color: Make certain the colors are bright and not faded.

Corner Sharpness: Any cornor damage, however minute, will lower the grade.

Abrasion: Look at both the surfaces and edges of the card.

Lighting: Whenever possible, view cards under incadescent light; fluorescent
light tends to hide imperfections.
