Default Local Auction House- Are theses Cards Real?

Hi guys, below is a link to a local auction house. There are a few cards, some autographs and memorabilia. Is there any chance that the Mantle and Mathewson are real? I don't do cards so I am just curious. If by some crazy chance they are, you might get a good deal. I have no affiliation with the auction house and am not promoting this in anyway.

I don't know Topps fakes as well but the Matty looks good from the scan. I don't see any blatant fakes in the auction. (I could have missed something as I only looked for a minute)

I agree with Leon. I don't know how to tell if the Mantle is real or not, but it looks good to me and the Matty looks good for sure to me.

Best,

AndyH

The Matty and Gehrig look good. I don't know if it's the scan but the front of the Mantle looks off to me.

Default Mantle

The 51 Bowman Mantle looks to be fake in my honest opinion. The borders look too big, and color appears to be off.

Just my 2 cents.

Default Mantle

As a long time lurker in the shadows, I can finally speak to something I have experience with. That 1951 Bowman Mantle is almost positively a fake. The face is too red. Unforunately, many years ago,before I stumbled on this Site, I purchased one. I keep it as a example of making a purchase before you know what you are doing. It was an expensive lesson,but one I learned well.

The Mantle looked a bit bright, so I'd double check that. The other pics are small and I did a quick look throuigh, but I didn't see any obvious reprints, including the Topps. I've never heard of reprints of the blankets (#1). If they're felt, I'd assume those are legit.

Pretty sure I saw the exact same Matty in a LiveAuctioneers auction... isn't this the same card as lot #14 in the "local auction"? http://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/...-baseball-card
