Ethan, you need to start off showing a card in these threads you start? It's ok, you are amongst friends and a few grouches.

Pete - that is a wonderful early Ruth card.

And I don't know about perfect centering but this one is well centered. From our BST no less...(and shown many times before)

Nice Pete. This E121 is pretty well centered. This E220 is not centered, but itís one of the most centered examples I have seen.

Perfect centering makes up for any other flaws that might be present on a card, as seen in this E254 Colgan's Chip of Reulbach.

Totally agree. Pete, members were asked to share their cards in this thread yet you chose to chime in with a negative remark.

Why donít you save your comments for a thread which better fits your post!

Some amazing cards here. Real cherries. Creme de la creme. Diamonds in the rough. I can go on but words do no justice here. Iíll let the cards do the talking.

Always loved that Plank Ted. From the color to the centering, it's a blazer for sure!
