Would this be a defect preventing a Gem Mint 10?
Looks like the actual card stock has an imperfection, however the original printing and gloss are in tact. This wasn't from an impact, but appears to be the way the card was manufactured. Would this little bump disqualify it from being a 10 or would it not effect the eye appeal.

yes. In My experience anything on a card will cause a lower grade, factory or not; including blemishes in the ink, stock and rough cuts

Ugh! Otherwise this would've been a 10 I think. Now it's probably not even worth submitting.

7.5 would be my guess.

It is visibly off center left to right.

I have 9s that have no visible flaw. 10s are tough. Only very minor print defects on certain cards and slight centering shifts are allowed. I would not waste time or money submitting that card. Just buy a psa 10.

These are all the cards I pulled from packs and was planning on submitting. Guess I'll skip the Pete Roses since they are of center and the the Eric Davis due to the defect. The McGwire is already in its way for grading but doubt I'll get another ten. The centering looked in spec mathematically but the print doesn't look as good as the ten I just got graded. We will see I guess. The Puckett looks to be in spec in terms of centering. What you guys think.

Maybe the Carter on the left and the Strawberry. Wouldn't bother with the rest.

Don't know what you are looking at... The Mcgwire and Puckett both look too off center for 10's. Agree with Six with the Carter and Strawberry
