1977 OPC Glossy Hockey Round Corners--Trimmed?
A few weeks back, I picked up a 1977 OPC Glossy Darryl Sittler with round corners. Since it wasn't listed as being part of either the Sittler master set or the Sittler/OPC master set (only the square cornered is listed) I submitted a couple of slot requests. That was on February 5th. Since then, the only movement from PSA on the matter is that when I check my slot request, the card is now listed as follows: "1977 O-PEE-CHEE GLOSSY 20 DARRYL SITTLER ROUND CORNERS?.Trim()"
A couple of questions: First, have there been problems with people trimming square-cornered '77 Topps/OPC hockey glossies and trying to turn them into round-cornered cards? (As my understanding is that the square-cornered version is rarer than the round cornered version, this doesn't make a lot of sense, but what do I know.)
Second: Is PSA now trying to somehow re-grade my card after the fact? If the card was trimmed, I wish they'd figured that out when they had the card in front of them, instead of trying to determine this based on my relatively low-rez scans.
Or is this yet another example of vintage hockey being little more than a niche market for PSA?
