A few more Ebay wins, the Ashburn used to reside in a GAI 9 holder.

It's just something about a nicely centered card. Even if the corners are chewed off, I still like the centering. Call me crazy...I've been called worse.


Not me! I like my cards the same as I like my women. Sharp and fresh-looking (like new) with no evidence of abuse, excessive handling or wear. A little off-centered is OK as long as she's not a total whack job, you know, miscut showing parts of another. No schitzo's need apply.

YUP, that Ashburn is Killer! I agree that nice centering can make or break a card. I won't go as far as the corners being chewed off, but I would much more prefer a dead centered card with a hint on a corner.

What am I doing here? Im a Football guy! If you 57 guys don't stop posting all these amazing cards I might be temped to get some myself! Nice looking cards bojo.

Matt,
Nice job on the Ashburn. I like the Martin as well. I think it is hands down his best card.

Arny,
They look like 7's and 8's to me. The Gardner and Long might be miscut but still solid raw cards. Where did you find them??
