The following HOFer or significant cards have irregular cuts, which is not uncommon for this issue or could be trimmed: Beckley Bender/no trees, G. Brown/Wash, Clarke/port, Collins/Phil, Flick, Kleinow/Bos. There are also a few dozen other cards within the set which have similar irregularities.

Overall the set grades from GD to EX, averaging VG.

One of the few near complete T206 Sets ever sold at auction which includes the very rare Magie error.
