I wouldn't buy that card in person at the PSA booth at the National with your money or mine, regardless who the seller was. Run, like your bank account depended on it.

I could have bought a 6 1 time for 14 grand but the card was frosted on the outer edge about 2/3 away around so that scared me.Im down to 11 cards but its looking like i will always lack 1.

What about this VG-EX 4?

1952 Mantle PSA 4

If the centering were just a little better, that one would be tempting.

Oh to have 11 grand to throw around!! Good luck if I were to dump that on a 52 Mantle I'd make damn sure it was a great example for the grade.

I don't have one, doubt that I ever will have one. Way out of my league, at my age. So I just have to be happy with my 57 and going forward from there. Don't see much reason to go beyond 65. So, I'll keep what I have between 57 and 65 and be happy with it all.

Jim I held one once. Gosh it was a beauty. Some guys would trade their entire collection for one but for some reason i couldn't part with my 58 set just for that one card, even though it is considered quite possibly the most coveted card in the hobby. Other than the Wagner i guess.

Rob,

I'm the same way, I could sell all I had and get a decent 52, I wouldnt enjoy it nowhere near the way I enjoy what I have now though! I've thought about it before though lol!

It may be, but I enjoy my "history books", cards in binders, a whole lot more than I ever could out of one card, no matter who's face is on the card or what it's worth.

How about buying this 1952 Mantle?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Original...=item2325cb585f
I forgot who was all involved in the talks, but this is one worth looking over 600.00 only

What else I's he selling? I'd stay away if he has a 52 Mantle you'd think he has other quality stuff to.

i stay away.. he is not selling anything else ....All i can say do your homework..Track down PSA and check the id # on it maybe. I usually dont buy from people below 100, and well a 0 is a sign to pass it by.

I think the card is real, but is the scan stolen? Who has he done business with before, hobby-related or not?

Ask for some references, then check them out. Be up front with him and tell him it's the low feedback that has you wary. Ask him to meet in person. For 5-figures on a card like this, if you are truly interested, isn't it worth a plane trip?

Personally, I'd stay away. This is not a Wagner or Plank. Another Mantle in this grade will pop up any day now.

Probably shill bidding going on there. Who else would buy one at the same time, just coincidence- Nah. Pass it by.
Meanwhile, look at that auction i posted here, some really cool items you can buy with that kind of $$$.
Perhaps can do a secret santa, i know other forums do something like that. DO you guys have it?
