Default Advice on Hostess PSA Grading

I have a card I plan to submit to PSA with an upcoming 70's Special. I need help on if it needs to be cut closer to the outline or possibly evened up.

Looking for advice from someone that has cut/trimmed them and submitted to PSA. And to learn how it worked out. I don't care about what SGC might do. I've looked at examples of several PSA 10's and all seem to be cut pretty tight to the lines.

Thanks!

Im no expert on the subject, but I like that look, better than cutting to close to the black dotted lines. Looks awesome!

Usually if they're cut like what you show, they get PSA 5s because they're not attractive. Definitely cut them straight right outside the top of the border. I actually got a 9 on a Panel a few years ago by doing that, and I just used regular craft scissors.

Thanks. These are definitely outside my wheelhouse, at least as far as grading goes. As far as eating Hostess, and getting these cards, as a kid, now that's a different story!

That cut looks much nicer to me. I'd be happy with that card and that cut.

Good luck.
