There are some great vintage cards with bad or less than good centering....Let's face it, there are some pack-fresh gems out there that cost a fraction of the cost due to less than ideal centering...Do you have any?

Great cards there. Centering is right at the top of what I look for but anyone who collects vintage odd ball sets sometime you have no choice either take an OC card or wait a long time, sometimes many years.

Here are a few from my collection-

Nice cards, guys. I wouldn't consider the Ewing card O/C, but that's just my opinion. As far as the Mays goes, I had to really look twice to see it. I guess I notice L/R centering first and I didn't see anything wrong with it upon first glance. Then I looked T/B and I see what you're talking about. If I have to pick a card that is O/C, I would prefer it to be T/B rather than L/R.

I don't see anything wrong with the Young, maybe it's just me. The Baker card is not cut right, not really O/C. I've noticed that a lot of E90-1 are cut short and that one definitely is L/R (on the left border).

I would love to own any of those cards.
