Technically, a grade of SGC 80 EX/NM 6 is conservatively accurate for the offered card, but the naked eye begs to differ. The corners aren't perfect, sure, but they are very impressive for the assessed grade. The centering isn't perfect either, but it's certainly accurate enough to produce a pleasing image that doesn't look awkward. The surface appears very clean, with no glaring imperfections that immediately unsettle the eye. In short, this is a fantastic specimen of Roberto Clemente's 1955 Topps rookie card that presents much better than the SGC grade without the hefty price tag!
