I do a lot of ho-ing wth GlobalGolf.  If I am buying anything painted (Driver, FW, hybrid), I shop Value.  I like to refinish clubs and I always regrip anyway.  If I am buying irons, I shop Very Good and am rarely disappointed.  If I am buying wedges, I shop Excellent or Mint.  The good news is they take the stuff back for ANY reason inside 30 days.

Id guess value putters are a bit risky in general but I did buy a Mizuno Betti BC3 recently in value and I was very pleased by the condition. The black was worn on some corners but the face and top line where in solid condition and it had a newish super stroke grip. I will try and upload some photos from home later.

I have a few more reference points from this week.  King F6 irons in Value looked about like my brand-new Mizuno JPX-EZ Forged did afer 2-3 range sessions with dirty balls... a little face splatter on the black chrome of the face but mostly just brushing on the sole.  Grips were probably 50% gone but playable... will still change them because I don't care for them (GP C2Pro) and I got a screaming deal on ~50 SuperStroke TX1s.

Same order had a King LTD 4-5w in Value that I'd easily have accepted marked VG.  Very minor face marks but no full-on splatter, little if any sole brushing, etc.  

Lastly, I got a Odyssey Metal-X #7 Mid (for CounterBalance conversion) that had noticeable paint wear on the sole, but the face was near perfect (no dings/dents on the insert, one or two very minor dings on the top line) and the top paint was completely in tact.  It may become a refinish project over the winter but it's fine as is in terms of play-ability and even aesthetically at address.

As a regular buyer from their site, I would suggest you take into account the age of the item being sold.  "Value" condition of an item released early in the year will most likely show far heavier wear (my experience) than items released later in the cycle.  For reference, I recently grabbed this set, listed as "value", a few weeks ago.  I'm not as picky as some but I'd be hard-pressed to believe most would call this a "value" set of forged irons.

That's been my experience for the most part too.
