Default Sharp Corners ---------------- Not

Collectors who are obsessed with issues such as sharp corners and centering are missing out on wide variety of attractive and significant collectible items.

Let's see your round corners.

Vintage cards are subject to handling or were issued without sharp corners or both.

Gamers understand round corners on these, which are designed to be handled.

1-56 AL New York 1.jpg

Provenance of vintage material when signed by prior owners can have acceptably soft corners.

1-1-Waddell signed.jpg

Imagine how difficult it would be to handle credit cards with sharp corners.

Yogi Trump Card.jpg

Ticket collectors would have a difficult time finding this one with sharp corners.



And of course autographed ball collectors are indifferent to the issue of sharp corners.



Even cheeseheads appreciate softer corners

Frank, is that an original APBA set of Yankees from 1956?

That last "cheesy" picture may not have sharp corners, but there may be a couple of additional, hidden points worth exploring.

These E90-1 cards are lacking internal sharp corners as well.

I was going to ask same question. I played that game as a kid. Spent countless hours.
