How do card backs affect grade?

How do card backs affect grade?
I know the grading criteria on this website mentions that the centering on the back of the card can definitely affect the grade. However, I was wondering about the corners and edges? Many of my cards edges look great from the front, but then some whiteness might show on the back. How is that treated in the card grade? Can you get a 10 with a minor white or flawed backside edge?

Completed sets:
91-92 USA: Hoops, Skybox, Impel
91-92 UD Award Winner Holograms
92-93 Topps Beam Team, TSC Beam Team, Ultra (all inserts)
93-94 TSC Beam Team, Ultra (Famous Nicknames, Inside/Outside, Rebound Kings)

I HIGHLY doubt it.

A 9.5 allows visible flaws, but not a 10.

Thank you! I have often wondered the same thing.

I like career Chicago Bears, Blackhawks, Bulls, Cubs, Fire, Red Stars, and Sky players in their respective Halls of Fame, in addition to several authors and track athletes. Add to the list some personal favorite lifers from past and present rosters, and the other 35,000 cards in my collection are for you.
