Hi, first time posting. I purchased the card above (1948 leaf dimaggio) on a respectable online auction house with the description of it being trimmed. The scans looked great so I inquired more about the card. I was told by the owner of the company that there was evidence pointing to the card being cut from an uncut sheet, not maliciously trimmed to improve its condition. My question is that I have a bunch if vintage I have ready to send to sgc but I wasn't sure if I should just ask for the dimaggio to be authenticated off the bat and slabbed or should I try to have it get a numerical grade and if it is found altered then it would still be slabbed in authentic case..? Would sgc give it a numerical grade if the dimensions were not exact because it was manually cut? Thank you for the input...

Hi and welcome to the boards!

Nice Dimaggio.

On the grading, it does not matter who or when it was cut if SGC or PSA for that matter determine it was cut/trimmed it will always grade an Auth. A card does not always have to match the standard size but it must have a factory cut in order to grade a number.

I think your Dimaggio is well worth grading even if it gets an Auth, valuable card in any grade. The added value graded in this case is a future buyer will know they are getting a real 1948 Leaf Dimaggio and that added piece of mind on an expensive card is worth it.

Plus that card will pop in an SGC slab!

Thanks.... I'll probably just ask for it to be authenticated and not even waste their time trying to grade it first. It's really a great card despite the fact it being manually cut... No creases, corners are nice and edges. They said it didn't appear to be cut recently so it does have an aged look to it and it's not unusually crisp for its age. I will try to post pics when I get my order back when I submit. I held off on submitting because it was either the dimaggio or submitting my cards. I picked the dimaggio. Off the top of your head does sgc always run monthly specials? I was gonna try to take advantage of Decembers specials but gonna wait for another special...
