Below are pictures of some of the most badly miscut football cards I have handled. They aren't worth much; they're just fun to look at. Some of them have provided clues as to how the full sheets of cards were configured.
There are two types of miscut cards:
- A card that is so badly off-center that part of it is cut off or part of the next card is showing, or
- A card that is cut to the wrong dimensions, either too big, too small, or with non-square corners.
The cards below are all of the first type.
These three 1966 Philadelphia cards are miscut both vertically and horizontally, such that each contains parts of three of its neighbors. You can see the neighboring cards on the Gallery's 1966 Philadelphia uncut sheet page.
These four 1966 Topps cards appear to have been together on the sheet.
These two miscut 1967 Topps cards also appear to have been together on the sheet. The card to the left of Johnny Robinson is Wahoo McDaniel, as you can see on the Gallery's (unfinished) 1967 Topps uncut sheet page.
Here is a large group of vertically miscut second series 1968 Topps football cards. You can tell from how they fit together that the sheet was first cut into horizontal strips, then the strips were cut into individual cards. The Gallery's 1968 Topps uncut sheet page shows where the cards were on the sheet.
