The seller states this card isn't trimmed. But anyone can spot the trim job on the bottom, and probably all around the card!

Love his estimation as to what the card would grade at. I would vote poor or authentic at best.

No, no. It's not trimmed. It's just a honest long cut...

I would stay away from this seller. I say this because they are selling PSA graded cards yet this Cobb, a few other Cobbs, a T205 Walter Johnson and a 1933 Goudey Babe Ruth are ungraded.

What gives? Are they hoping that someone believes what they say in their description and are willing to pay MORE for an ungraded card in belief that it will actually get that grade and be worth what they paid (instead of coming back at a lower grade and them paying more for the card than it is worth in that grade)?

I have no idea why they would post that, because their other cards look okay. An auction like this will KILL the value of the rest of their cards.

its also probably recolored, it looks like some of the creases and scuffs are recolored and maybe the black line.

I used to have one of these that was recolored too, but it wasnt this one.

Yes, all four borders look wavy if you ask me.

To be honest, it does not state anywhere whereas it's trimmed or not, just "authentic"

Here is the description:

Up for auction is a 1912 Honest Long Cut Ty Cobb T227.
This card has tip touches with some creasing and some glue
on the back on the corners check out the scans.

This card is 100% authentic and will make a
great addition to any collection. Please check
out my other auctions. Thank you
and good luck bidding.

Ok, sorry. He must have been getting some emails from hopefully members here saying it's trimmed, they realized this and removed it, but failed to mention still, clearly, it is trimmed
