I can assure you that I'm being completely serious. Language and grammar are two of my hobbies. I know. Who'd a thunk it? Please see the definition below:

inflammable (în-flàm´e-bel) adjective
1.Easily ignited and capable of burning rapidly; flammable. See Usage Note at flammable*
2.Quickly or easily aroused to strong emotion; excitable.

[Middle English, liable to inflammation, from Medieval Latin ìnflammâbilis, from Latin ìnflammâre, to inflame. See inflame.]

*Usage Note: Historically, flammable and inflammable mean the same thing. However, the presence of the prefix in- has misled many people into assuming that inflammable means "not flammable" or "noncombustible." In the circumstances, it is therefore advisable to use only flammable in contexts imparting warnings or on product labels, where a misinterpretation might have more serious consequences for the reader than an etymological mistake would deserve.

...and you're 100% correct about the idiom "diamond cut."

I agree NJDolphans...I would not touch any of those cards. Also in regards to a rough cut...they are very uncommon with PSA 8s...I cannot remember a 1963 Fleer with a rough cut that bad.

Its one thing if we are talking about 1954 topps...but the rough cut on that card really takes away from the card.
