I was following this listing all last week. I came across it when it was an auction with an opening bid of $3,500 and no bids. I exchanged a few messages with the seller and he answered all my questions with no problem, but it started sounding like a scam when he said he had the pack on consignment from an "elderly gentleman" and he explained his "7 day return policy." I was already skeptical knowing that these Christmas rack packs are commonly tampered with and once I received confirmation that the Mantle is 100% fake, I definitely wasn't going to bid, but kept watching. The seller then jacked up the opening bid to $15,000 and I saw it "sold" for $20,000. So now it's relisted for even more? Total scam.

How did you confirm that the Mantle card was fake ? I loved his 5% or 10% "restocking charge"
Give me a break !!

This is the same seller that is selling 1986 Fleer basketball packs graded by Atlas Grading Company for $350-400.

It's a very appealing pack specially with the Mickey Mantle that mantle Definitely looks trimmed hopefully it's real.

"I tried to ask the seller a few questions but he banned me from asking questions or bidding."


Banned for asking questions? That's like putting up a bat signal saying "this is fake".

I have heard these are/were repacks. I would think it unlikely there would be both white and gray backs. It seems way too good to be true.

He banned me to because I asked a question about the bottom of the package. Seller is a total AH

Great way to build a customer base!

Not this guy, but I was threatened with harassment charges for telling a guy he needed bigger pictures of his posted cards. It was easy to see he wasn't cropping them, which, of course, made them harder to see. I tried explaining to him how to go about it, but quickly realized he was intentionally doing it on purpose in order to hide the defects.
It takes all kinds, and all kinds walk among us everyday, unfortunately!

Default interesting strategy

Unknowing buyer would have to open pack to send in and find out card is a fake. If they bought it thinking it was real, they would likely never open it and find out
