When you’re trying to describe cropping to someone and you want a good example..here it is.

3 cards from the 1970-71 O-Pee-Chee set show the differences cropping makes in such an obvious way.

In real like Monahan was a couple inches taller, but this is ridiculous.

The photos are almost identical, but the cropping is all over the place. If I had to chose I’d say the Monahan is the best and the Walton the worst, I mean move it up a few cm’s and it would be great.

Now if you want to talk about Miscuts….

Magnusson is so close to being almost OK. There is a sliver of the white border at the top. As for Doak and Stemkowski. Well it would be fun to find the cards above and below.

Oh well, still love them all in their vintagey goodness.

1970-71 O-Pee-Chee 90/280 for 32.1%
