Here is a Milton Bradley Nolan Ryan card graded incorrectly, this time by SGC. Notice the white line on the bottom border of a card. Yep, that's a Milton Bradley.

The author, Carlton ( goheels), posts here occasionally. I think he is the one who developed the virtual sheet. He has several sets and several of the complete games. The games themselves come up on eBay and in auctions from time to time, but hardly ever with "unopened" cards

I have known (online) Carlton for years and he has always been very generous with both his time and knowledge of not only MB cards but the slew of other variations we all still frequently discuss ....he not only referred me to net54, but helped me to understand the intricacies of the Win a Card game. I am thankful for learning about both. He was also nice enough to forward me his article on the MBs to read before publication.

I know he has sold some of his MBs sets off over the years, but I would speculate he may still own more MB cards than anyone else as he has been collecting these cards/games for years.

The top row of baseball will never have a white border. Definitely the toughest to locate unless in hand.

Any way to get a pick of the sheet blown up to a bigger size?

Want to make sure I understand this correctly: by top row I assume you are referring to the row that starts with Jim Merritt and Tom Seaver (Sheet in post #27)? If my assumption is correct, isn't it possible that these could have a white top border depending on the card being OC top to bottom?

Yes I’m referring to the Merritt row. I’ve had approximately 1500 of these cards over the years and have yet to see it. The white border would definitely not be from one of the FB. From the top of the sheet...maybe. I’d have to defer to Carlton on that one. If that were the case, it would definitely be a miscut. A mere top to bottom OC wouldn’t reveal a border.

Hi Jared, wouldn't you think there would have to be some chance that there could be some with a top white border based on where the card exists on the MB sheet, unless the burlap goes far beyond what I'll call the normal cut line for the cards? Here is a regular sheet from 1968, there is at least some white outside the burlap on all sides. Since we don't have an uncut MB sheet we may never know for sure. It's really hard to see on this sheet how much if any white is above the burlap on the top row cards.

I'd love to have a definitive answer as I try to use possible white border's on MB's vs. regular issue to verify MB's when searching on line as its very difficult to tell by color alone due to the inconsistency of scanner settings. If I'm off on Merritt, I'm off on at least 10 others.
