Default Found my white whale

This card has been #1 on my list for a long while. I have been waiting to find an example in this grade that had strong eye appeal. When I saw this I nearly jumped out of my seat. I am very happy to add this to my PC.

Thank you for taking a look.

Holy Cow. How many are centered like that? 1 in every 30? Worse? At first blush it hits the eye like a 6. That is one truly amazing and beautiful card.

Mad respect for smashing the BIN button on that baby.

And that freak beautiful Mick went to a DONNIE fan, too! AWESOME!

Amazing card. Many were scrambling to make room for that and hit the BIN I'm sure.

Simply amazing. Can't imagine a nicer looking example for the grade.

Beautiful 52 Mantle! Great centering and image. Looks so much better than the PSA 3 grade. Outstanding pickup!
