Michael -- is this common in your experience with Beckett-graded cards? I have heard rumors that they have graded lots of sheet-cut cards, whether knowingly or not.
Buy high, sell low.

Default Exactly

Exactly what Brian said and in my experiences yes I have seen many sheet cut or outright trimmed cards in bvg holders. A higher percentage than the percentage of osa and sgc cards that I have seen in holders. There was a time it was a crazy amount this has gotten better but in no way do I trust them catching trimmed cards.
