    Huge addition in today - vintage Mantle

    This is not only my first vintage Mantle, but also only my third vintage card period. I'm not sure on the potential grade, although I would hope a 4 or 5. This came via a trade to a die-hard Allen and Ginter collector.

    The trader is a collecting friend, and he knew I was starting to collect a little bit of Mantle. He was the one who offered up the card, which shocked me.

    Nice pick up and great trade. It's not a 5 but I think it's better than a 2. I'd say it would grade a 3 or maybe a 4. I can't tell from the scan but that mark on the back might bump you down. It's hard to tell without seeing it in person.

    Nice addition
    Hopefully not, although it will likely be a good while before I pick up another.

    Regardless of the low grade I might very well go ahead and grade it.

    Id say 2 or 3
    Nice clean honest wear collector grade card, like all 1961 cards should look like if they were played with like intended. Nice pickup.
