Default Bad Mantle?

I wouldn't normally ask about late-life Mantle autographs, as I have no interest in them; however, I wanted to buy something else from this guy but when I saw this Mantle I became concerned.

To me this looks like the 'banana' examples Shelly and others talk about. If it's good then I'm even dumber about modern Mantles than I thought:

Here is the seller of that baseball.

He mixes good with bad. He knows exactly what he's doing.

Thank you, Andrew.

Every time I consider getting away from exposing forgeries and those who sell them, I jump back in again.
