Posted By: <b>Paul S</b><p>Hard for me to tell about the corners with a camera picture rather than a scan, as maybe the corner wear is being exagerated by it. If they are as tough post-war as they are pre then you might end up with a 5-ish. I'll bet it presents much better than the picture, and that nice glossiness saves the day for me -- centering or not, so you'd get a 6 from me, and I'll cross my fingers for you that they feel the same. BTW what's that little white line in the red on the lower left hand corner?

Posted By: <b>Paul S</b><p>You can see I have a similar centering issue with my Williams, although mine may me more detrimental since it's a bit of a diamond cut...at least your borders are straight. Let us know how you make out, so I'll know what to expect <img src="/images/happy.gif" height=14 width=14><br /><img src="http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z26/pspec/topps_1955_Williams.jpg"><br /><br />*edited for scan and to say that I have more border inconsistencies with this set than I think any other post-war set.

Posted By: <b>Marty</b><p>The bottom left corner will keep it no higher than vgex. It there is a crease on the bottom through the U or if there is a bend on the right side, may just be the edge of the glare, it will grade lower.

Posted By: <b>Anthony</b><p>I'd go with an SGC 40 as well, due to corners.
