Default 1952 Topps mantle.......I wonder........

Has anyone EVER heard of someone that actually found an ungraded 1952 Topps Mantle on Ebay that ended up being authentic ? It's always fun to look at these Ebay ads and see these cards. Most of these cards have gone through hell just to look "aged"

No. But I have to think the chances of that are more likely with a '52 Mantle than with some of these Wagner atrocities I see on eBay and in card groups on FB where the font on the front of the card is wrong, and people still can't be convinced it's fake. "But there's a chance, right?!?!?" Um no, there is not a chance. It's interesting to think about how many of those folks really believe that, or just want you to believe they are dumb because they are trying to scam someone else...

I'm noticing a possible surface wrinkle just to the left of the "M" in his signature. I can't really tell without holding the card in hand.

I am thinking third variant

And as I get older I find wrinkles add character

This made me laugh. Thanks.

I'll include a higher forehead in that assessment of defining character.

Gawd, I used to have great hair. Now I just have a lot more character.

Well, you certainly can't argue with that centering.
