Default Worst Topps Centering ever?

Fellow collectors searched the forum to help with a disagreement with a friend. He said 1971 Topps and 1972 are by far the worst for centering issues of any Topps set. I thought there is no one set...many older ones can have issues...all thoughts welcome. Thank you

The 50s has some real horrible centering. But with cards that pretty who cares.

1975 Topps...not only off-centered is common, but so are the diamond cut cards.

Agree with 65, but 61 is also tough.

I agree with this for modern era. I have over 100 Topps Chrome Stanton RCs. Only half are decently centered and probably only 1/4 (or less) 45/55 - 50/50. I have some that are 90/10 - 95/5 or worse. That combined with the heavy chrome finish and warped cards...
