Default ***Question about W14 Strip Cards..Should I cut or leave alone???

I found in a collection just purchased about 40 strip cards.
The photo is attached. My question is should I have them graded as-is, or cut them square..(either way they are going to "hand-cut" on the label).

I looked at many completed sales and there are a lot in either direction.

Thanks for the help!!!!

Those that will have decent sized borders on all sides even after trimming evenly, I would definitely recommend trimming them. The others are kind of a personal preference thing.

looking at the scans, please do not trim any of them. They will never grade any higher than authentic because of the almost universal corner damage... good luck! ty

I gotta agree with Ty. I'd probably just leave 'em be. The more of the original card that is there, the better.

I'd leave them as is. They're fragile enough already.

To answer your question, don't cut.

The answer to the question that should have been asked; no, don't grade them, spend that grading money on buying more W514s.
