I'll go ahead and say it. To me, the Brown appears trimmed and the the Young appears to have re-colored corners. The borders on Brown are too thin and no way Young has that much border wear, but barely any wear on the corners.
The gold borders on T205 cards flake easily, and can be exclusive to corner wear. It is possible that the corners have been recolored.

Default Thanks Guys---

-----for posting your thoughts. I never will be as expert on old tobacco cards as are MANY here on N54, which is why I posted the larger scans.

Doesn't the huge white borders & bottom line printing on Brown look very funny & unreal to anyone? It doesn't seem to be close to the printing on my Brown.

Hope others chime in--I'm just trying to educate myself!

Sorry for your loss guy. You don’t normally see so many great looking cards in one collection, wish you supplied better pics. I could be wrong, but I’m not feeling the black ink the names were printed in.

Does the McGraw CJ look a bit long to anyone else? Maybe just the angle.

I'm amazed & perplexed at the same time.
Thank you for the enlarged photos.

To give a little bit more information the writing on the bottom of the piedmont and sports life cards are more of a light/dark brown rather than a black. Idk if that helps? Both cobbs the speaker and the others have brown writing. The caramel plank has black writing on the bottom of the card.

On the Cy young card and the coloring of the corners, I looked at the gloss in the light and it all seems super consistent (the gold border) and the corners have slight wear to them so if they were colored I dont think there would be any white wearing to them at all? As one member said it looks like the gold border is fragile and prone to chipping as there are several slight "chips" in the border.

I could provide measurements on the brown card as well I really don't see any evidence of trimming the sides of the card look absolutely untouched, but I am absolutely no expert I have no clue.

I am still gathering a lot of information as the days go on as I talk with people to learn more about the cards and get ready to make the decision on grading or whatever the future is. Thank you everybody for looking, discussing and telling me your opinions. I really appreciate the enlarged photos too!!!!

Any more info regarding the cards I can provide just ask thank you.

Not sure about the printing being any different. Same placement, color and position. My pictures suck, but the writing when im looking at it in my hands seems to match exactly especially the color. Your card has perfect side to side centering while mine is off by a decent margin. The up and down seems a little skinny and suspect on the top of the card because our bottoms look very similar in regards to spacing I do agree. I could measure my card pretty accurately. When I hold it on its side and look at the sides themselves I just dont see any evidence of trimming, but again I have no idea. Thank you guys.

Edit: I put the brown card on top of the green cobb card to compare sizes and it looks the exact same size if not a nano meter(idk what to call it) bigger. Both side to side and up and down seems to be same size. Again I have no idea if that helps or if it proves anything.

What does that gold sticker on the case of the card of M Brown say?

It looks familiar but I just can't remember what it is. I PMed the OP for pics sent directly from their phone to my email. If they can do that it should be pretty easy to see what they are with full size pictures. Most cell phones take very high quality pictures. The ones that have been posted on here are good pics that have been greatly reduced in size.
