I am removing the borders from the Topps designs year by year.
This time it is 1997, a set I never collected since I was not collecting at the time.
This is the only one I have from that set.
And without the border:
I don't really feel like it looks any better or worse than the full card.
The trimmed border does make the card look cleaner. The white edge reveals the airbrush look of the green color and makes it look sloppy, but not bad.
Up next, another set I never picked up many cards of since I was not collecting at the time, 1996.
