Default I have a stupid question about BGS grading

I always see people posting that a card is a pop 1. What does that mean?

Population of one. Only one with that grade.

It's the only card with that grade. So if a card is numbered to 99, but it's the only one graded a 9.5, it's a pop 1. If there are 3 of those 99 graded a 9.5, it's a pop 3. Same goes for any card, with any grade.

It's referring to the population report for the card, POP 1 would mean only 1 of this card has been graded a 9.5 or whatever the grade might be.

Thanks. Is there something that lets you know it's the only one?

I'm pretty sure it means according to the BGS Population Report, there has only been 1 of that card graded that particular grade.

I think this is incorrect, POP 1 means only 1 of the cards has been graded a 9.5....

Look at a Montana RC Gem Mint 10....POP would be 1, because there is only 1 (last time I checked anyway) but there are 1000s of them that have been graded....

No it means the only one is graded 9.5, doesn't matter how many are graded
