2017 Card-vent Calendar: December 16

There's a place in the continental United States where you can lie down and simultaneously touch four baseball cards while only touching one piece of cardboard. This card deserves its own national monument and 24-hour armed guard.

This may be the worst-cut card in existence. I guess technically you could find one containing exactly 25% of each card, but that would actually be more mathematically stable and would adhere better to the Golden Ratio. This one is even a few degrees off from vertical and horizontal orientation. I suppose it could be double printed on one side, out of register, or could have a mismatched front and back, but that would be asking too much.

I'm getting this thing graded.

Whoa! I mean, I’d definitely put it in my collection. What’s the back look like?

Fleer was known for off-center photography. Why should their miscuts be any different?
