Obvious fake. Don't want anyone on the board getting burned on this one.

Yea. I messaged the seller telling him it was fake. His response, "ok." No effort whatsoever to revise his description. "LOOKS AUTHENTIC TO ME!!!" Well, if you did any research at all, it wouldn't look authentic. Crooks like this make me hate this hobby sometimes. Someone is going to get burned on this as it is already up to $100.

Looks like it got pulled. When i first looked at this..i didnt remember it being in a PSA holder, it was just in a cardsaver i belive.

Hey guys- next time...post the sellers homepage or put the image on here. because once the item is pulled, we cant see it.

On this one, the loop on the "y" in Mickey ended too far from the bottom of the box. If you look at a real one, there is only a very small gap between the y and the box. For some, but not all, fakes, the gap is almost twice as wide. This was one of those. There are other signs of fakes, but I am not that knowledgeable on those things.

Dave,

This is a site I always refer to when looking at '52 Topps Mantles.

http://home.comcast.net/~52mantle/52toppsmantlereal.htm

It does a great job of highlighting the differences between the two variations, and the common mistakes made when trying to fake the cards.

I hope this helps!

Bill
