The world's most trusted source in collecting

I've had a very good experience with NESC with the exception of one 1967 Topps card that was trimmed and promptly refunded. I did grade a 1966 Mantle Rub Offs which received a BVG 8, purchased as a NM raw insert. I also purchased a very sharp lot of 400 1975 Topps minis from NESC, none trimmed, that I am very happy with. You are correct, though, their large lots tend to have a larger share of OC cards but still a decent value in the purchases I've made. I have seen a few posts, one on an ebay forum, claiming that 4 Sharp Corners deals trimmed cards, which apparently PSA doesn't catch. With as much volume as 4SC does, I can't imagine that PSA is looking at every single card for trimming. After reading these posts, I did inspect about 30 1973 Topps PSA 8 that I purchased from $SC, each for under $4, and found no evidence of trimming with the use of a 10x loupe.
