Picked this up this morning. I don't collect vintage, this will be my first vintage card. I probably over paid for it.

Nice! Looks like a possible resubmit for a straight 6. I'm sure it's better than 80/20 centering. Only question is what the corners would grade now. Probably worth reholdering just to get into a new tamper-evident slab.

How much to resubmit for this card? I was thinking to toehold as well.

SMR price guide has a PSA 5 list priced at $9250, so that would be the declared value.

WALK-THROUGH *$300
Any card with a declared value of $5,000 - $9,999 must be submitted at this service level or higher.

ESTIMATED TURNAROUND: 1 Business Day
Please mark outside of shipment box with "1 Day Service"

Do the top corners look better in person than the scan? They look rounded to me from the picture you provided. Definitely set PSA 5 no qualifiers as your min grade accepted.

I think I'd prefer that card in the 7 OC holder vs a straight 5. Nice pick up either way.

I would too. I would send it in with a minimum grade 6 or keep it as a 7o/c.

I would get it out of that holder into whatever they will grade it without a qualifier.

Default 52 Mantle

Today is the day I added a 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle to the PC. The card arrived via FedEx 20min ago. I am not one for hyperbole but this is the single biggest day of my hobby life. People have written about what it is like to own one of these cards and I can tell you that the feeling is real. It is unbelievable. Actually seeing one in your hand is an experience.

In the pantheon of life experiences this is at the table with the birth of my daughter, my wedding day, and my first kiss. The Mick's arrival may not outweigh those but it is absolutely moving.

I have been the under bidder a few times and/or could never find the right combination of price and condition. However, I saw this example and went for it. Saturated color and perfect registration. The only flaw is a crease in the upper left corner and some chipping that does not impact the image.

Also, I am very happy to have this place to share this experience.

If you ever have the opportunity to add one of these go for it.

Kris

Kris, I am so happy for you. You've expressed your feelings beautifully. I know what you're feeling; it is Mantle cardboard ecstacy! Thank you for sharing with us. It's a beauty. For what it's worth, I commend you for choosing one with strong colors and perfect registration. Those qualities are paramount with me, too. That elegant Mick will bring a nice smile to your face every time you look at it!

Way da go, bro! ---- Brian Powell
