Glad to see he clarified that his test run theory was wrong. I admire the integrity. Weird card though.

As a kid, I had a '65 Mantle #350 that would have met the "too fragile" test: It was in a toploader, totally waterlogged and still wet. If you tried to remove it, the card would have disintegrated.

The front of this Mantle card looks very fake to me. When you zoom into the picture there are no pixels. That is sign of a forgery.

Who knows? I distinctly remember a friend of mine having a 1953 Jackie Robinson that was glued to another one that had a whole punch through it. Why do kids do what they do to cards?
