I'm not kidding -- I love Hobby related sports cards -- this one I'll never get

A little context - she used to be the Beckett on-line editor and I really do collect hobby people related card -- and have one of my own

There is also a Mike Jaspersen (son of Bob) in the same Allen and Ginter set and I could use one of those as well

I'm not sure if it's a small bit of OCD, but I crave symmetry in my life, and that translates to an obsession with centering when it comes to cards (almost to a fault, at times.) After centering, I seek color/clarity. I can live with "corner touches" as I believe a 100+ year old card should have corners that look more loved than my 89 Upper Decks. I have learned to be OK with small creases that don't diminish the overall appeal. Bad backs don't distract me at all if the fronts are beautiful.

Sam, beautiful cards.

For me...

1. Registration (clarity of image, lack of print defects)
2. Centering
3. Stains
4. Paper integrity (chipping, rough edges)
5. Corners

(Also, with my T206's, it's very important to me, to have bold/dark ink on the backs)
