centering on a card - beckettdah - 11-08-2012 03:57 AM

i have never recieved a card back from bgs grading off centered.
can someone walk me through the process of centering seeing if a card that is centered and off centered. some reason, i can't wrap my brain around the process. i just took it as a giveme that all recent cards are centered.

thank you.

i can't seem to get a young gun p.k. subban graded a 9.5 or better.
they keep coming back with a grade of a 9. althought i did get a retro card with a 9.5.
