Below is a Magazine Grading guide I have borrowed from a vintage grading site. I will use this as a guideline to grade my magazines.
Gem Mint - Absolutely pristine, off-the-rack, perfect. You just bought it at the newsstand last week and picked out the best copy available.Mint - About as perfect as can be. The only difference between this and a Gem Mint, is that it may have been read once or twice before being put in plastic. Maybe the cover is not as bright as it used to be, but it's not faded either. Near Mint - May have a mailing label if it's still neatly affixed.
May have one or two minor flaws that don't jump out at you, such as a slightly curled up corner on the cover, the slightest bit of edge wear (but no tears), some very light rubbing along the edge of the spine, a hint of stress marks on the covers near the spine, or a slight crease on an inside page or two. Excellent + - A copy that's been carefully read with a couple of the minor flaws such as those mentioned above but slightly more worn: your curled up corner now has a crease at the tip, edge wear grows heavier but still no tears, heavier rubbing along spine, more apparent stress marks, maybe a 1/4 or less tear to the edge of an inside page.
Excellent - Exactly what you'd think: Average. A copy of a magazine that's seen it's time on the coffee table but has not fallen prey to any mishaps. More of what's above.
Maybe the very beginning of a split at the very top or bottom of the spine (and I'm talking 1/8 or less, more of a fray than a split). Some light age toning to the inside pages. Sometimes there will be a nice issue with a thumbprint or blurred printing on the covers. Still very nice without any damage that jumps out at you but appears on closer inspection. Very Good - A well-read copy of a magazine where the above flaws are approaching damage.Rubbing may be heavier, splits from 1/4" to 1/2" at top and bottom of spine, cover may have creasing but still not heavy or excessive. 1/4" to 1/2" edge tears into covers and pages. Good - Now the magazine is getting a little beat up. May have some binding issues such as a rolled spine. May have some soiling and/or staining on the covers.
Longer splits in the spine but the covers are holding on. It is still complete with covers and no missing pages, but there may be some small pieces torn from the edges.
Poor - Pages torn out. Really any magazine that is too beat-up to grade.
