Wow. This is an amazing post. I go to shows looking for these types of cards exclusively. I can't wait to see what the final product looks like.

some to add:

1957 mid series tough 8's:
Bob Thurman #279
Alex Kellner #280
Andy Carey #290
Irv Noren #298 (and it's a DP)
Mike Garcia #300
Jack Phillips #307
Ernie Johnson #333
Granny Hamner #335
Taylor Phillips #343
Hal Naragon #347
Eddie Miksis #350

then Chuck Tanner #392 is a tough one


1958
Ossie Virgil #107
Bennie Daniels #392

Congratulations Greg! I never thought the card would grade an 8!!!!! I was thinking a 6. Good thing I am not in the grading business......

I would like to start compiling a list of the "tougher/toughest" common cards from each Topps set, organized by year.
By tougher/toughest, I am talking about cards that frequently have print defects, mis-cuts, centering issues, or any
type of obscure reason that would hinder their ability to receive a high grade such as an 8 or 9.

Please contribute but refrain from listing HOF'ers and SP's.

Let's also stay away from high numbers unless they blow away other highs from that year. This is for commons only.

This is my list so far:

1952 Topps:
Bobby Hogue #9
Monty Basgall #12
Eddie Robinson #32
Lou Kretlow #42
Gordon Goldsberry #46
Marv Rickert #50
Al Zarilla #70
Wes Westrum #75
Herman Wehmeier #80

THANKS
I would also include Jim Delsing, at least it seems that way since I have been looking, and that has been a while.
Checking out PSA's site, most are better than the ones I have seen, but most will also give you an idea what I am talking about.

William Werle is also another one. The left to right centering seems like it is always off.
I found this one, which was one of the better ones I had seen, so I went for it.

Greg has one of the best eyes in the biz...his vision for grading is uncanny. He actually helped me concoct this whole list and I'm sure he could double the size of it easily.

Willie Miranda #278 high number second to last card in set. When I was completing the set this was the hardest one for me.
