If that flip is real, some scammer will buy that just for the flip, find an uncracked slab, insert a counterfeit Mantle and you'll see it back on eBay.

Who cracks out an already graded ex/mt 52 mantle? I wasn't even thinking about some idiot buying it for that reason. Should be pulled from eBay.

Well, if you put any credence in the auction description (not that I do), his dad submitted the card for grading and like many of us was probably diappointed and cracked sawed it out to (1) enjoy it raw or (2) sub again with same or another TPG.
