Default Hobby terms that you love

Might as well see what this wrinkle brings...

I love the term “beater”. It speaks to me.

I still like the term 'rounded corners'. To me it always meant the possibility of a cool card at a reasonable price.

Your cart is empty but it doesn't have to be.

On second thought I should put that in the other thread.

"Happy Birthday! Here's a free pre-war card."

Happy Birthday could be replaced with a holiday ("Merry Christmas!") or really any type of celebration.

Disclaimer: I don't know if I've ever heard this term.

Those plus
weird miscut
severe diamond cut
missing ink
extra ink
DDIE/print offset
error
so OC that part of another card is showing
custom superfractor/refractor

Pretty much anything that describes the card as not being a normal boring card.
