The time has surely come for an appreciation thread featuring cards you have that came back from the graders with dreaded qualifiers, but don't bother you (nearly) at all. You love them and/or love the discounted price you paid for them!!!!

Post 'em if you got 'em...

The '61 Say Hey Kid just has a bit of snow while his '73 Mets card is barely a hair off from being properly centered. The Mantle has a tiny bit of wax near his face that could've been easily removed before it was submitted, but alas. The Rose is a puzzler for sure...


These 4 (including a trio of HOF southpaws) are all O/C, but if your OCD isn't too bad, they don't present much of a problem...

Is "OC" a standard designation now?

I'm pretty sure the O/C qualifier has been there since the beginning. I have a 1970 Topps Nolan Ryan in an ancient slab that's graded a PSA 6 OC. That one, let me tell you, is way off center and wouldn't deserve to be in this thread.

That was sarcasm. I have seen much worse come back with no OC than several of the cards pictured.

It depends on the degree of offcenteredness and the straight grade the card is.

(No longer) graded, but certainly could be qualified. Love it regardless, the surface and color are killer.

This one is obviously more about the back than the front...

...and it don't bother me none.

The marker on the back of this card doesnt bother me at all. In fact, I can picture an 8 year old boy sitting in his room in 1956 writing the uniform numbers of his heroes on the back of their cards. I have no idea if thats the case, but its my story and Im sticking to it.

Technically this is out of line since its not graded, but this would probably get some kind of qualifier. I dont know though - it could be a straight 6. Normally 80/20 centering range or worse I stay away from, but for some reason this one has never bothered me. Maybe because the 62 borders are a bit duller - I just dont really notice them. The pic is killer with nice color and a crispy image:

That '72 Lefty Traded is ridiculous, btw. I have one centered about the same that was a straight PSA 8.

I don't know if I overpaid, but this was roughly 20% the VCP on a straight 9.

A pair of 1961 Topps...

The virtually flawless #485 Banks MVP is featured in the "Grading Has Clouded Our Minds" thread, and the tough #531 Coates high number has a little too much black/gray here and there (most visibly in the yellow area) for PSA's liking. Really nothing very noticeable, so I'm happy to have grabbed it...
