Default Help with info on cutting these......

Hi Gang:

While the "cards" I am showing are post war, my question is in general so putting it here on the hompage.

Heritage recently had some of the 1955 All American Sports Club Handcut "cards" that were graded by PSA.

See:

https://sports.ha.com/itm/baseball-c...ed-dailystatus

I have a handful of the full sheets from this set. I am wondering how one goes about cutting the sheets to get the right size etc for these to be graded.

I am certainly not adept enough with scissors to do this and I don't think the old paper cutters would do a good enough job.

Have any of you cut these from the sheet? If so how did you do it? Are there professionals out there to take them to?

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks,

Fred

Your question is timely as I was about to post the same question. The cards I am trying to cut are commons from the 1980's but I have tried twice already and screwed up the cut. Any help / guidance / recommendations would be appreciated.

Do you have a good/large print shop near you? If I had some sort of sheet to cut down to exact specifications, I would start there. They are pros at cutting printed materials down to the required sizes, whatever those may be. Go there and see if they would be interested in helping you out. Shouldn't cost you much at all.

I tried a couple print shops with no luck. I ended up going to a picture framer and used his old manual matting cutter.

If SGC cuts the cards, will they place them slabs with "AUTH" labels?

If there is evidence of trimming on ANY card, doesn't that automatically give it an AUTH label (due to trimming)?

Ding, Ding, Ding! I have a mat cutter!!
I thought the deal with a mat cutter (razor blade) was that under close scrutiny one could tell that It wasn't cut at the factory. I realize that Jell-O and Post Cereal cards should be cut with a razor but is that what the original poster is asking?

Print shops have power cutters that cut with a guillotine blade. Only draw back is that you need 30 or more sheets of scrap paper to make any cuts. The guillotine blade would dull if you only cut a sheet at a time. Bring a ream of paper with you when you ask them to cut to size. The power cutter is super precise as long as the user knows what they're doing. You need to find a print shop that isn't busy.
If you're cutting sheets, you need a pile of scrap paper the same size of the sheet.
