Default OC cards that donít bother you?

Letís see some of your cards which are less than perfectly centered - but either it doesnít bother you, or you love them anyway. All other things equal, I will usually go for the better centered card when I have the chance - but sometimes you donít have the chance - or you run across an OC card that is gorgeous anyway.

Iíll start with these 3:

If I started scanning and posting my OC stars I'd be here all week. If it wasn't for OC star cards I'd never finish a set!

I think you should build a 62 set, all with the white line variations instead of the green tint. LOL

Those cards are ALL Gorgeous, even the 90-10 Maris with the white line

I agree, I LIKE em off center and sharp corners you can shave with.

hate the "OC" on the grades though

Currently the pride and joy of my collection (I don't have a huge collection of vintage). I'm not overly bothered by centering. These 1952 Bowman High Numbers are notoriously off centered across the board. Oh, and I love the half grades...I feel like I got the quality of a 6 for the price of a 5.

Funny....it took me a few moments to even realize your Yogi was off center...I guess I REALLY don't mind the top/bottom centering....I didn't even see it

Yeah it's about 20/80 top-to-bottom. But nice side to side and other than that, a NM card.

That card is very high up on my list right now. I won't mind a bit O/C, but going to have to save for one. Even the beat-up, ungraded ones on eBay are like $350 and north. Oy.

Just read this thread again. I see what you did there. The white line I'll give you, but that card is NOT 90/10! It's 75/25 L-R, and maybe a bit worse top to bottom.

Centering people, jeez...

90-10 when I'm buying and 75-25 if I'm selling.

Default OC cards that donít bother you?

If Darren's thread is on graded OC cards, can this be the one for raw ones that are OC and don't bother you? I present my latest pickups - centering schmentering!:
