    Might be a good deal for a vintage collector... 52 Mantle +

    15 minutes left to this ends. If the Mantle is real, would be a steal. Maybe somebody can tell better than me. Bad auction title.

    His little disclaimer about not knowing their authenticity kinda scares me.

    Yeah, me too. But I can't tell from the scan, and the other cards aren't usually faked. I found it looking for Zimmers, and that and the others look real. Just a weird auction.

    "52 Mantle" and "Good deal" should never be in the same sentence. Ever.


    Just sayin'.

    im not a vintage collector but i say go for it! Huge steal if mantles real and if all the others are real then the mantle has a better chance of being real because he makes it seem like he traded and got all those cards from 1 trade



    What Do I know Im just S[strike:1451d4gu]trasburgMania[/strike:1451d4gu] Looking forward to a new start.

    I'm not bidding on it. I was thinking someone who knows 52's better than me might be able to tell one way or the other. All the other cards look good to me. But yeah, if it's too good too be true, it probably is. But I could definitely be wrong here.

    Is the centering on most Mantle's usually that good? It looks close to perfect.

    The seller knew the Mantle alone would bring 2-3k in a psa 1 holder. Its creasing is too patterened that makes it look like the soiled vintage reprints that are sold as distressed reprints or forged vintage. No way thats real.

    Shady....He or she knew about or mentions "grading"(yet doesnt grade the mantle) plus the mantle was already listed a few times which means to me that its a reprint.

    Hell that is Spiderman #1, if it was legit that would be a steal. But just can't see it being legit.

    Chico Ca ..... is about 2 hours from Sacramento ca ...

    This listing / auction has been on every Craigslist town board from here to there over the last 6 months.

    I would say it is BOGUS.

    I have inquired via email for closer scans and a neutral place to see the cards - no good.
