Kenner Football Starting Lineup grade scale information


Thanks for visiting our web page of football starting lineup figures. We have now added this grade scale page. This information is so that you can understand how we come about our grades for the each of the 1988-1990 football figures. We have compared AFA graded figures to our grades and we are very close to their grades. We grade 0-100 with one overall grade. AFA has 3 numbers Color, Bubble, Figure. If you take the 3 numbers AFA give and divide by 3 you will come up with one number. Our grade will be close to that grade. We think that our 80-83 grade will grade in the same area as AFA 70-75...
