Default Mickey Mantle Played CF

Hey all. I am looking at a 53 mantle that has "CF" in pencil in the lower corner. Descent centering and over all condition. I am working on this set and the price is below what some very gnarly condition cards have been going for on Ebay. Any advice on marked vintage?

He BK, what do you think?!?!?!?

If you're looking at it for a raw set, go for it. If you're looking to get it graded for a registry set, PSA will normally give it a MK designator, which makes it worth about 2-3 grades lower than the number. So if it would be a PSA 4 without the writing, it would get a 4(MK) and be worth around a 1.5-2 that doesn't have writing. It would count as a PSA 2 for registry scoring.

Oh, what a difference a year makes.
