Posted By: <b>Paul S</b><p>I go along with the others on the grade. To my tastes, though, I wouldn't mind the top-to-bottom centering issue as much on this particular card than in other years, because the Topps '64 card design has a lot of white area on top to begin with, as well as bold lettering, hence the bottom is not what catches my eye. I think you can get away with that more than if it had L-R centering issues, as far as eye appeal.
