Default Found my white whale

This card has been #1 on my list for a long while. I have been waiting to find an example in this grade that had strong eye appeal. When I saw this I nearly jumped out of my seat. I am very happy to add this to my PC.

Thank you for taking a look.

Holy Cow. How many are centered like that? 1 in every 30? Worse? At first blush it hits the eye like a 6. That is one truly amazing and beautiful card.

Mad respect for smashing the BIN button on that baby.

And that freak beautiful Mick went to a DONNIE fan, too! AWESOME!

Amazing card. Many were scrambling to make room for that and hit the BIN I'm sure.

Simply amazing. Can't imagine a nicer looking example for the grade.

Congrats!

Beautiful 52 Mantle! Great centering and image. Looks so much better than the PSA 3 grade. Outstanding pickup!

Thanks for the comments fellas. It is good to hear confirmation on the eye appeal of the card because I still have a little bit of sticker shock. Most of my purchases are not in this league.

Going blind with these 52's popping up. Where have these gems been hiding?
Truley remarkable centering and eye appeal.
Is it true, was it on ebay?? as a BIN?

Edit: Nevermind, i found it. That was a good bit of saving the pennies.
