These stem from the cutting of the sheet. They're usually considered less desirable than those perforated on all four sides.

I remember someone saying that as straight edges are much less common on a sheet than fully perforated stamps, shouldn't they bring a premium? I guess aesthetics (perfs on four sides) trumps scarcity in this case.

Supply and demand. Supply is smaller since the number of straight edge stamps in a pane is less than fully perf stamps. But as you say, many collectors do not like the way a straight edge stamp looks and avoid them.
