I see chipping along the bottom edge and less than perfect corners on the right side. How can this be a 10? SGC would be hard pressed to put this in a 96 holder if I subbed it.

On the positive side, it is free of the stray red print smudges usually found across the top. Centering, though not perfect either, appears to be within 45/55. Back centering could be better, but is within spec, too.

It appears to be one of those 92/96 cards i.e. depending on the day, could go either way. Nice card in general for sure. In general, Gem Mint 10's are a detriment to the hobby in my opinion.

Of course it's a 10 --- PSA says so.
