View Full Version : Question about Trimming

08-12-2007, 05:39 AM
Posted By: <b>MilfordMark</b><p>From time to time, I see a card on ebay that says something like, "...right side has evidence of trimming". I assume this means that the card will not be graded. Does this mean that it won't be graded (e.g. PSA 2) or it won't be authenticated at all.<br /><br />If the latter, why is that? In other words, if the card was authentic, albeit trimmed, why can it not be called authentic.<br /><br />I am not trying to advocate card trimming, just trying to understand the rationale.<br /><br />Thanks,<br /><br />Mark
