Default 1981 Topps Joe Montana Rookie

Hi everybody,

Earlier today I bought a 1981 Topps Joe Montana rookie card. The condition is as seen in the scanned picture. I don't know what to do with it and I was wondering if I could get some opinions. I don't know if I should get it graded or hold on to it as it is. But, as you can see the centering is off and besides that everything else looks good to me. I may also be open to possible trades or selling it.

Thanks!

its off center at a diagonal, no way it gets above a 8!!! anything under an 8, you might as well just keep it raw!! not to mention that it also looks trimmed!!

It looks "diamond" cut to me. I'd keep it raw.

This. The diamond cut = 7 max, which you won't even get you the grading fee premium on it over raw.
