Posted By: <b>Jeff Mohler</b><p>Just a new collector here, but I had the same thought. I thought it looked trimmed on the right side and the top. Jeff

Posted By: <b>T206Collector</b><p>...hether cards are trimmed, but a card as sharp as that not lying in a slab somewhere is presumptively trimmed in my opinion, unless proven otherwise. In any event, the edges look too wavy even without that presumption.

Posted By: <b>leon</b><p>Remember to look at more than 1 thing about the card. Unless it's real obvious and wavy be sure to check the size and that all of the corners have similar, even, wear. A telltale sign is when 2 of the corners are rounded on one side and sharper on the other. Think about if you trim something and how that would make the corners look. On this one it's too hard to tell from the scan, for me. There is always a suspicion when something is that sharp though...regards

Posted By: <b>Julie Vognar</b><p>borders and size for comparison; if your card is a LITTLE narrower or shorter, it's probably trimmed. Also, check the edges, looking at them sideways, not from the top--are they too thick for natural tapering?

Posted By: <b>John S</b><p>Without holding it....tough to tell for sure. The bottom left corner gives me the first impression that the card is trimmed.
