Posted By: <b>Jason L</b><p>These seem to be less active over on this Board, but I thought I'd get us started...<br /><br />I finally acquired one of my faves! This is a monster card of the 1960s, in my opinion. (not mine, specifically, but the card itself)...<br /><br /><img src="http://i99.photobucket.com/albums/l289/smallcapdaddy/1964ToppsNL-PSA7.jpg"><br />

Posted By: <b>Anthony</b><p>Mostly been buying pre WW1 the last few weeks, but did pick up a couple of upgrades for my Dan Dee set. I apologize for the bad scans, the cards are on their way so I pulled the sellers scans<br /><img src="http://i8.ebayimg.com/05/i/000/b2/4e/b852_1.JPG"><br /><img src="http://i3.ebayimg.com/01/i/000/b2/4c/0dc3_1.JPG"><br /><br />And I got this pack I've been looking for for a long time. Just need '52 and '56 nickel packs for the full Topps regular issue run.<br /><img src="http://images.milehighcardco.com/large/2496.jpg">

Posted By: <b>Marc S.</b><p>Tell me honestly...did you buy it just because you like the Alan Rosen Roast on the reverse of the pack? That has to be worth a 40-50% premium, at least.

Posted By: <b>Anthony</b><p>LOL. I have Mike and Danny some s**t about that, I've got 4 or 5 other packs with that on the back. I told them it hurt the value of the pack at least 40% having that on there. They laughed, and then offered to reholder them for me if it really bothered me.<br /> I think I read his million dollar find came out to something like 350K when all sold. I did consider negging the seller I got some of the packs from (his outlet, B & E), but figured that wasn't really fair.

Posted By: <b>Paul S</b><p>Brazil -- great looking card. Seems to me a lot of 64 Giants have held up well over the years.<br /><br />Anthony -- you and a few others on here are going to make a pack collector out of me.<br /><br />Paul S

Posted By: <b>Marc S.</b><p>I'm not a fan of the centering on that one. It may actually be 49/51 from L/R. Can you still return it?<br /><br /><br />Congratulations on a phenomenal pickup<br /><br />

Posted By: <b>Paul S</b><p>Bob,<br /><br />Too much empty space on the right half of the card -- What, they needed to use half the card just to show his bat!?!? Yellow text, white text...yellow again...white. Geez, who thought of that?!<br /><br /><br />...But truly, terrific looking card. Restores my faith to see something like that. Congrats!

Posted By: <b>Rob Ray</b><p>I cant see the corners too well...but they LOOK great. The 57 mantle looks stunning. What stopped it from being a mint grade,I wonder?? The back?<br />That is a bee-yoo-tiful card!<br />rob

Posted By: <b>peter chao</b><p>Jason,<br /><br />Some guy was airbrushed out of the background of the card. The ghost is on every '57 Topps Mantle I've seen, however, I hesitate to say it's on all of them. Does anybody know for sure?<br /><br />Peter C.
