Very nice '54. I was the under bidder on that.

Glad it's in the Net54 family.

Also, very nice Bazooka box, Howard.

Plus, gorgeous '52 Bowman, Matty.

In addition, many other great Mantles (as if there were any other kind of Mantle card - not counting the hideous '65 Bancroft ).

Finally So happy to have found the ideal example.

Also couldn't resist this 63 since it had absolutely zero PD in the green or the blue areas.

And a well centered White Letter was also too good to pass up...

Thanks so much, fellas.

I may have shown this one before, but spending some time with my Mantles in hand for the holiday and this is in some ways my best Mantle and should be shared with fellow Mantle enthusiasts (for some reason foreign relatives and young children don't seem to share my level of excitement for cards, lol— though my son is getting there!)

To be centered and to be signed in the right spot with the perfect pen thickness, just gets me every time I look at it. Crossed it to a red flip card grade as well now so the red really pops.
