Hi Bob!

Isn't belonging to this site for addicts like all of us, like an alcoholic living next door to a liquor store?

Great cards so far. The '52 is off the charts, Bob. And Dave's initial entry has me still going back to see if I can see an iota of "off-centeredness". And so many other greats ones shown, very nice...
'
Don't know what the technical grade will be but this '51 has some good eye appeal in hand in light of the wrinkle/crease running vertically on the right. It runs about 63.5% of the width of the card (that's a joke but it might be close). Oh well....
My goal as an auctioneer was to have the card in hand look exactly the same as on the screen. I remember adjusting a few settings so they would come out that way when the lucky winner viewed them in hand. This looks as good or better in hand. When I first got into collecting again, as a 30 something, I had a PSA 6 1951 Mantle and eventually sold it when I went backward, time-wise, into pre-war. This card probably has better eye appeal, the crease not withstanding than that first one.

That Mantle rookie looks better than MANY sixes and sevens. Centered and registered. Savvy pickup, sir.

I'm getting dizzy from that autographed 52 mantle. Insane card Bob! Leon that rookie is so fresh and so clean.

Not is the race for the nicest card in this thread. But this is a card I've wanted for a long time.

IT's the club to be in these days!!!! Funny Of all the Cobbs, Ruths I've owned and/or currently own...my last 2 mantle acquisitions put one of the biggest smiles on my face of any of them.
