Default Trimmed 91 Topps Stadium Club Griffey?

I was following this card tonight and noticed how much of the far right bat is missing from the PSA/PWCC card compared to my 2 copies that I purchased back in 91 that went straight from the pack into recessed screw downs.

Always wondered, with these borderless cards, how do they determine if a card is centered perfectly or not?

One of my copies below.

I don’t think it’s trimmed for two reasons:
-It fits the slab perfectly.
-There is more of the image on the left than in your two examples. Look where the grey line hits the Stadium Club logo.
I think they’re just centered differently. But as you asked... What actually IS centered on these??

It's just a centering issue, these were cut differently. I think the Jeter rookie Stadium Club card has the same variance.

Cardsagain74 (John) also brought it to my attention last night that in the PSA/PWCC one, there is more of the "S" showing on Griffey's cap than there is on the one of mine. I guess, when it comes right down to it, there likely isn't a real set of guidelines to go by with centering on these cards?
Initial thoughts, when I seen the PWCC one and compared it to mine, it was definitely trimmed.

I agree with what you're saying but nothing would surprise me anymore.

I also think, if one decides that they are going to try the trimming/doctoring/grading thing, they aren't going to start out on an expensive and/or rare card to see if they are successful enough to sneak one past the TPG's.

Here's mine if you want to compare, it was worth about 25 bucks as a 10 when I bought it so I seriously doubt it's trimmed.

Thanks Peter.

I loved these cards when they first came out but, IIRC, this was at the height of the boom and its sudden collapse?
I never thought I'd see the day where these cards entered the market and actually received some hobby love.
This is another Griffey favorite of mine.

I like this one as it captures Griffey's mild rebellious side. This is actually a fairly rare variation.
