I hate my scanners

I've got two printer/scanners and I wouldn't pay a dime for either one of them again. I don't care what I do I can't get certain cards to scan correctly. Like this Dennis Martinez Fleer Somethingorother Auto'd card.

I really like the card. Denny Martinez was a huge favorite of mine back when he was active. But I'll be damned if I can get either of my scanners to show the whole card. The white border gets chopped off every time. I even tried scanning it in a holder (as you can tell by the reverse side scan) but no joy. 

Maybe the border is too white. Maybe there's a secret I can't figure out. Maybe I should use a camera. Maybe I need a 'dedicated' scanner instead of these multi-function deals. Maybe someone will nuke Canon headquarters. And then do the same to Epson.
