The larger cabinet-type cards frequently have problems only with the borders and not the image.
Personally I tend to focus on the image and not the pinholes, border stains and missing corners.
I agree with those who suggest that the grade is irrelevant, whether it is technically accurate or not.

The character of such a card can be enhanced by its defects.
I like to look at my $18 T3 and wonder who stole home plate and why.

Greg. Great card and awesome pickup btw! As a Matty collector, I was back and forth over upping my bid on that one. The corner kept me from going higher. For $1500 you got a great deal on an amazing piece!

interesting thread. not sure how one can say the missing corner doesn’t matter, then say what a great deal the buyer got. if the price on a card like this is a “deal,” then in large part it is because of the missing corner. not that there’s anything wrong with that. i have more off condition cards in my collection than I care to count, so i am no cardboard snob. I just realize them for what they are.

I'm still divided, as elsewhere I am a bit of nut on centering and lack of obvious flaws, so this was not a typical purchase (and only because Matty fan). Right or not, I'd probably sell the card for what I paid.

David, you should sell me that Hilltop Park PC for a price which suggests that 100% of the card is present in the holder.

I guess some claim Matty was only 95% as good as WaJo.
