Posted By: <b>Rob Scales</b><p>Do you think this is legit? There's a lot of bidding going on for this card (and the seller appears to be selling a suspect Cobb card as well).<br /><br /><a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/Mickey-Mantle-Topps-1952-Rookie-311-Great-Condition_W0QQitemZ300141881145QQihZ020QQcategoryZ 73435QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem" target="_new" rel="nofollow">http://cgi.ebay.com/Mickey-Mantle-Topps-1952-Rookie-311-Great-Condition_W0QQitemZ300141881145QQihZ020QQcategoryZ 73435QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem</a>

Posted By: <b>Jim VB</b><p>I certainly have my doubts. <br /><br />1. The seller has no history selling cards. In fact, not much history selling anything. She's purchased a few DVD's in the past. <br /><br />2. The card wasn't scanned, but photo was taken with a digital camera, with a flash, obscuring the image. The photo is turned on it's side, which tends to dis-orient the casual viewer.<br /><br />3. The hard luck story and fast need for cash are troubling. <br /><br />4. Won't meet to exchange the items for payment. Doesn't want cash!<br /><br />5. Has not answered several of my e-mails asking about the return policy if the card turns out to be a reprint. <br /><br />6. Lives out of the USA which will make law enforcement involvement more complicated. <br /><br />7. Paypal will cover the buyer for only $200.<br /><br />In sum, the whole thing smells fishy to me. And at the current price, the Mantle isn't even a great deal. Hard to tell, but the card looks G-VG and is closing in to $5000. I don't see a good outcome for the buyer, but who knows.

Posted By: <b>Paul S</b><p>I think you answered your own question. The card itself looks like it might be real (the back especially) but maybe a stolen scan? Seller has a 12! No grade for a card like that? I'd stay away.

Posted By: <b>Paul S</b><p>I didn't know a seller could throw out a bid. His loss, your gain.

Posted By: <b>Jim VB</b><p>Hey Steve, <br /><br />The bid the seller threw out came from a guy with a 60% feedback. Is that really you or just a fake name you use to jerk around phony sellers? &lt;LOL&gt;
