Ted - the depth of your knowledge on many issues is just staggering. Thanks for your regular contributions. While general bitching and moaning will always have a prominent place on Net 54, it's nice to come here and learn things too. General thanks for posting.

Each press run produced a 72-card sheet. Two 36-card formats were printed (inverted with respect to each other) on a 38-inch wide cardboard sheet (see sheet scan below).

The first cut of the 72-card sheet was done to separate the two 36-card arrangements. This first cut was a "rough" cut relative to the subsequent "sharp" cuts of the individual cards.

This first cut resulted in the cards in the middle of this sheet [Pieretti, Snider, Russell, and Mize (name on front)] having a rough left border.
