Default baseball template for scanning baseball cards

Is there a place where I can get a template to use when I am scanning
baseball cards so to keep them straight?

Not really a "template" but I use a SGC gasket from a cracked slab to line up even scans. For graded cards I'll place the gasket against the bottom edge of the scanner and just slide the slab up against the gasket. Same for raw cards, I'll almost universally scan them in a One Touch pressed up against the gasket.
For add size cards I don't have a recessed holder to scan them in I'll placed the gasket against the right of left side of the scanner about half way and level the card against the gasket. Then I'll use a business card to lift the gasket off the scanner bed and 99% of the time you have a level scan.
Always looking for rare Tommy Bridges items.

Default One of my favorite webcasts touches on this topic a lot

If you use You Tube and put in
One Million Cubs Scanning you will get a bunch of videos to watch

Look for our show listings in the Net 54 Calendar section

I just use a business card as a gap fillter between the scanner edge and the card I want to scan.
