It is refreshing to be around folks who realize a card can be nice and solid without being an "8". Don't get me wrong, who wouldn't like to have a collection of them? I know of collectors who have a lot more $$ than I ever will who won't even look at a card that is EX 5. I will never have the $$ to do that. I really enjoy what I am able to get. I like looking at the stuff you guys put up. I have seen some really nice stuff from you.
Wow thanks for all the 53's pics, what a great set you have there, awesome cards!!!! First thats an amazing Mantle, love the centering and I really think that will cross to SGC and I also think its bump worthy, looks like a 60 to me! To be honest it looks stronger than your Feller that got a 5. Love your Mathews too sharp card.
Thanks for the comments everyone. I am definitely thinking about some crossover action in the future...at least with the Mantle. The worst that can happen is that SGC gives it a 4 too. Either way, I love the card and set!
