What other cards did she inherit from her ex-bf. 1954 Topps Mantle or 1948 Leaf Joe Jackson?

No others. I'm not absolutely sure inherit was the right phrasing on my part anyway. My main point was it was acquired about 25 years ago just to set a timeline. So, not a recent fake for what that's worth.

And in the mean time I found my one 1951 Bowman card (Jerry Coleman) and did notice some differences. Thanks again for the info.

The biggest red flag on the backside is the skewed lettering of "Baseball." Take a look at your card juxtaposed against a genuine.

I need to go look at my card--you've made me question the legitimacy of it even though it's graded.

Sunburned Mick.....Another give away is when Mick's face looks like the new "Extra Crispy Colonel" in KFC commercials. The skin shading and skin tone on many fakes is not just off a bit, it is waaaaay crispy.....
