Default Stunning Jim Brown Rookie pulled from Cello Pack!

***This is a few months old, but I'm pretty sure there are a lot of you who haven't seen this before***

https://forums.collectors.com/discus...-rip-jim-brown



Like seriously, what are the odds of something like this happening? Pulling a close-to-mint DEAD CENTERED Jim Brown rookie from a cello pack? Holy shit! You could spend YEARS searching for an example this nice and still not find it! All the other cards he pulled were off-centered and that makes this whole thing even more crazier! Lucky SOB!

I'd sacrifice a little centering for better registration of the face, although of course the best of them isn't great in that regard.

Registration is distracting. I'd rather have a nice 4-5 with a focused image. There are two Brown cards where registration is the main issue: the RC and the 1961 Fleer.



The brownie and the photo are rarely both in register.

I have never seen a 58 Brown rookie with clear registration. I thought the blurry face was the norm..... Do they exist?

Some are better than others for sure. But I have never seen one really sharp.
