Your standards are too high....if that card had rounded corners, you wouldn't mind the chip at all

This Max Stein Cobb has zero creasing and ultra sharp corners. On the right I posted pics of the staple-holes on the top and bottom of the card. Without the staple holes, the card is a 7-8 easily.

My T3 displays great color and is in amazing shape except the 4 back corners are skimmed. It doesn’t affect the checklist at all.

I've always agreed with that. I know some collectors despise them but how a really clean card with a single pinhole grades lower than a card with a bunch of creases doesn't make much sense to me. A nice trimmed card? I get that. But a tiny pinhole not even noticeable in some pictures? I'll never understand that.

..it's even worse when the card shows up only every twelve years or so ...makes upgrading difficult for senior collectors....
