Default 1960 Topps Mantle PSA 9 with print mark

Was this a common flaw with the 1960 set ? I've seen several of the 1960 Topps cards with small print flaws. This example still garnered a grade of 9 and looks perfect other than print mark.

Yes the little bullseyes were fairly common from 59-63. Don't think the TPG's view it so bad unless there are a lot of them...nice card BTW!

As for the investor it's interesting to see how some will ignore snow or corner touches and focus only on centering and marks. This is why people are shocked when their near mint card comes back at a 5 and not an 8 or 9 !!

Took me a minute to find it which I think helps. If it were on The Mick’s forehead that’d be another story. Though I wonder if the grading companies see it that way as well.

I think a mark on his nose or the back of the card in a blank area pretty much counts the same. Not always, but pretty much. I am not bidding on a great looking card in an auction right now, that I need, because of a tobacco spot on the player's head... It's a fantastic card otherwise and I need it. But all I see is the dot on the head .... AND it's centered almost perfectly.....which I absolutely love. But that darned dot is all I see....

I would tend to think you are correct. It's all a matter of where the imperfection lies. Looking at this Mantle card I see tremendous colors with absolutely no snow or surface imperfections (other than the print mark) Add to that razor sharp corners and you can see why it would garner a 9. On my wish list !!

Default Marki

Anyone know if the mark is recurring ? The 67 Mantle can be found ( fairly easily ) with a red print dot at the bottom right front above the S in Yankees or along top right border. To me these are recurring print defects, or variant cards ( as opposed to variations) but they do not seem to affect the grading of the 67 card in any way.

A beautiful example with that recurring defect. I'm guessing it will not affect grade. This is a great looking PSA 9
