Loc: Top of the 1959 Registry
Good job, aconte. A new white whale on your list. I've got about a half dozen BVG 1952 that I will crack someday. Not sure if I'll sub them in a crossover or just keep them raw. But they will be cracked eventually. I can't stand Beckett slabbed cards.
Ctroop, your guess is as good as mine. There is a 1972 OPC #227 Orr/Park at 4 sharpcorners in Psa 9. It is centered, but has the rough cut. As many have said here recently, the rough cut shows there is no trimming.
I don't see a difference physically or psychologically (me) to off center or rough cuts ; if the card visually look good and have only these flaws ; then they should be no worse than Nm 7 and no better than 8. That's my rant for today,will scan some cards for rebuts later. Cheers.
