There is an extreme offset(1/16"") to the white borders. Helen Keller could read them across the room.
Remember, slightly less than two present of all UFO sightings turn out to be actual extraterrestrial craft.
Borrow three wide brimmed felt hats from the audience.

There are often such quality control issues with US Playing Card Co. cards. I bought a brick of normal rider backs and about half the decks in the brick, not all, just about half, had a noticeable offset in the printing / cutting process such that one side's white border was wider than the other. I just checked the 2 opened Jerry's Nuggets that I have, and the blue backed one has a slight border width difference, left vs right of only about 1/32". The red backed deck's borders were all spot on, identical in width.

A lot of cards have this accidental feature, I listened to a podcast one time about a gambler taking advantage of this misprint in Bee style playing cards, after playing with the deck for a while the gambler was able to essentially learn these misprints as a marked deck

I have always noticed Caravan decks as being cut slightly off...I once opened up a deck and the cut was so poor it ran through the pips.
