Posted By: <b>Elliot&nbsp; </b><p>I wanted to get people's opinion on this card---<a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1809317557" target=_new>http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1809317557</a><BR><BR>It looks short (T/B) but I have one that looks identical to this one, which measure perfectly, but I've always wondered if it was trimmed because of the appearance of smaller borders than some of my other Sport Kings.

Posted By: <b>HalleyGator</b><p>Maybe the Ruth SK cards had thinner borders than the Hubbell cards ... but if not, then it must be trimmed because King Carl has much more border:<BR><BR><img src="http://www.lewisbaseballcards.com/classes/baseBallCard/images/523Lg.jpg">

The hang nail effect of card board exstending off the edge in various places would ensure your lack of interest in bidding on this card...if you get my drift!
