Miscut Misfits

When I was a kid, I thought that miscut cards were cool. Especially the ones where you got half of one card and half of the other. I remember it being fun trying to figure out from the picture what card the bottom half was. 
Fast forward a couple of decades (ok, maybe more than a couple), and one thing I've realized while trying to complete my late 70's sets, is that there are a lot of miscut cards!
Try finding an Ozzie Smith rookie that doesn't have "Padres" almost chopped off. Both of mine look exactly the same, and all the ones I've seen at shows look like mine.
So I've decided to every now and then bring out some of my favorite miscut cards to share with everyone, and if I can remember a story that shows how much of a knucklehead I was when I was a child, I'll include that as well.
These aren't from when I was a child however, these are from 2010 Upper Deck. I got these from a 1500 ct box of assorted baseball cards I bought from my LCS.
NOTE: These cards have been enlarged to show texture.
Have you ever seen this type of miscut?  

Here's the back. You can see the extra "white" on the bottom of the card.

Here's another, just like the first.

They're also miscut at an angle as well. Are these miscut error cards? Miscut SP's?

I hope you're all kicking back watching game six tonight. You may hear from me again before the night is over.


  1. I've always liked mis-cuts too.
    As I sit at my desk writing this, all I have to do is look to my right and I can see my TV and watch the game at the same time !

  2. Consider me a miscut fan as well. My '79 Ozzie Smith is actually decently centered, although it has about 150 creases.

  3. Miscuts are the best. I love having something that slipped past quality control.
