It seems to have all of the features that one would look for in an authentic 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle baseball card, but I am not too sure if this is a reprint or not?
Any help would be appreciated (experts only please).
With that condition it has to be a reprint... Although the 2 reprints I am familiar with, 1 has this back which makes it obvious:
And then another has "Topps" in the top left which makes it obvious as a reprint as well. I would post it on blowoutcards.com in the forums, this is more of an autograph website, not really baseball cards. There are tons of counterfeits/reprints of that card so I would think it is a RP, if not it is the best shaped one I've ever seen and should be in a museum. LOL.
the edges on the back of the card have white on parts. If you look at nearly all of the graded 52`s you wont see that white edge. also the back looks pixelated. I would not buy this card unless I could see it in person, or if it was already graded. My personnel opinion.
whats the asking price?
It's up to about $600 now, but it continues to go higher.
Please post a link to the auction.
Thank you, Erich.
Obvious reprint. No if's ands or buts about it
The suckers on Ebay are bidding on this garbage.
This could bring Ebay some bad press so it might get pulled or revised
