Here is a sub for a small set I am working on completing.
It is the 1948 Swell Sports Thrills set. This brings me
down to needing just card #1.

1 1948 Swell Sport Thrills 4 GREATEST PITCHER 80
2 1948 Swell Sport Thrills 14 LOU GEHRIG 20
3 1948 Swell Sport Thrills 12 MOST DRAMATIC HR 60

The first two were raw cards. The last was a BVG 6
that I took a shot on and got lucky.

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.

Jean, that is Tim Horton of Donut fame, Correct? The 71-72 Dallas Smith is a tough card in that grade. Did most of those subs have the typical OPC Rough cut?

Why look for rough cuts? how much does this affect the grade? I have these 100 cards raw myself ;more off center than rough cuts, my off center last submission killed all my grades!
Cheers!

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.
