Arrow Whats wrong with this Mike Schmidt card?

First, sorry if this is posted in the wrong section. Check out this 1974 Topps Mike Schmidt I just bought with BIN, he listed it at poor condition...does this look like a poor condition card?..I know some people look at cards differently but for $3.35 and free shipping I would take these poor cards anyday for that price.

1974 Topps 283 Mike Schmidt POOR #D24732 | eBay

Yeah, looks like a poor trim job on the right side.

My guess is that the seller is right-handed. Look at how the top right of the card bends to the left.
I've spent a lot of time watching children use scissors (I'm a teacher) and I always notice that they tilt the scissors just a little to the left whenever they finish cutting a line.

agree, right side might be trimmed....also.. the picture surface looks rough, i have alot of old cards, some of the ink surfaces are rough(bumpy), and looks specked..look at his arm/elbow, you would assume thats the toploader but thats prob the card....i could be wrong, but i have cards from 70s that r like that,, cards were just made poorly back then, ie; alot of bad centering on vintage cards

Then it truly is sad that I knew instantly what the Avatar was, sad on my part only...and to get even sadder...

"Well Hey Hey baby
Tell me what's your name
From the way you look and the way you dress
I can tell you ain't got no shame..."



.....Help Me please.
