Thanks; since they don't charge submission fees for either MINSIZREQ or Miscut, I'll keep trying. After 2 more times, I'll probably go BVG.

A diamond cut is not the same as tilt. Tilt is when the image within a rectangular card is angled. A diamond cut is a type of miscut - the card is a parallelogram or rhombus shape with parallel borders. The ops exemplar I believe is a true miscut not diamond cut- the vertical edges flare out towards the bottom therefore the card is wider on the bottom than the top and the sides are not parallel.

Correct.

With a "diamond cut", the top and bottom edges are parallel with each other, and the left and right edges are parallel with each other, but the corners do not come to 90 degree angles. With the posted OPC Eddie Murray, it appears that the left and right edges are not parallel with each other, meaning the card is properly termed "miscut".

The 1952 Topps Nippy Jones posted above is not a 'diamond cut" as the corners are 90 degree angles. The image is simply tilted.
