Default 1952 Christmas Rack Pack with Mantle

I know all about these Christmas rack packs but have never seen a 52 Christmas Rack Pack with Mantle showing. Ebay seller is reputable but had this up last week and auction ended at $20K . Next day its back up for $24K Rack pack looks authentic down to the staples. Concerned about seal on bottom and fact that Mantle is on bottom of hanging pack instead of middle or top. Thoughts ?

Can you please educate me about these? Also why would someone sell this on eBay vs an auction house, if it was authentic?

PSA and SGC will not grade these rack packs. I tried to ask the seller a few questions but he banned me from asking questions or bidding. He had a 7 day return policy on other ad but current ad has ZERO return policy. Seems rather stupid if you return an untouched pack.

He sold 2 other 52 Christmas rack packs from same consignor which buyers are pleased with.

Is this the same guy? I've asked similar questions on here about these rack packs and was informed by some very knowledgeable collectors that these are fakes.

Definitely stay away from these. They are too easily fabricated.

So that guy is hilarious - Claims to "Love" 52 Topps but doesnt seem to have a clue on some the player names?
