Now I could be wrong but it looks as real as a $3 bill to me. For the condition the front is way too white. The entire back looks like it was printed with an inkjet printer. Could just be bad fuzzy pictures, I don't know.

I do not know if PSA charges if a card is rejected but I really hope they do. Otherwise why not send in as many fake cards as possible with no recourse.

They will only charge u that amount if it is real and in their opinion, worth over $10K.
If it is a fake, I can't imagine it being anymore than $20 or less?

Is the front surface scuffed or only discolored? I would think 3-4 but with elite front centering. It looks authentic to me.

PSA will charge you the $800 if you value it at $20,000 raw whether it is fake or real. That's the authentication that you're paying them for, and they're paying the insurance that they're not wrong and in case of damage during the grading process.

I've got some 1952s I will send you and you can check them out. It's hard to fake glossiness, card stock, paper grain, and printing techniques.

I didn't offer my opinion but I thought the same thing, Ben. Something just looks off to me without actually being able to place my finger on it?

I don't have any opinion about whether it's real or not

____________________________________________
Didn't think of that. Is general card-authentication procedure kosher to post?

John, don't be discouraged by the lack of feedback on what some think whether your card is fake or not.
More than a few come on here looking for info on cards but until they have proven to be legit members/collectors, most don't like to divulge info to them, which would only help them become better forgers/scammers.

This guy, although it is only my opinion, struck me as someone like that.

I have both versions of the Mantle. One was graded when I bought it, the other not. Before finalizing the purchase of the ungraded card I sent it to Levi Bleam at 707 Spotscards. I would actually trust his opinion over any grader at any service when it comes to 52 cards in general and Mantle specifically. Plus, despite his reputation for high prices, he is completely trustworthy and honest. He did not charge me for his review ( it turned out to be good), but I have been a long time customer. You can contact him through his 707 web site. Not sure if he would do a review for someone he did not have experience with.

Don"t know where you live but he does attend some shows. His schedule may be on his web site
