Posted By: <b>Vanessa Phipps</b><p>Ok guys I came across this auction last night and didnt know what to think of it. Has anyone heard of the grading company that originally graded this card? The card obviously didnt sell, but the seller has over 300 positive feedbacks. Do you think this card is authintic? Thanks<br /><br /><br /><br /><a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/1952-T0PPS-311-MICKEY-MANTLE-GRADED-CARD-TED-WILLIAMS_W0QQitemZ330179064079QQihZ014QQcategoryZ6 36QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem" target="_new" rel="nofollow">http://cgi.ebay.com/1952-T0PPS-311-MICKEY-MANTLE-GRADED-CARD-TED-WILLIAMS_W0QQitemZ330179064079QQihZ014QQcategoryZ6 36QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem</a>

Posted By: <b>Dave Hornish</b><p>It is not real and not even a good fake.<br /><br />Here's a link to a real Mantle. The differences are easy to spot.<br /><br /><a href="http://tinyurl.com/287x4k" target="_new" rel="nofollow">http://tinyurl.com/287x4k</a><br /><br />Forgive me for outing this but with 4060 Views, I think it would be impossible to miss.

Posted By: <b>Gilbert Maines</b><p>Vanessa: you can tell whether a '52 Topps is real or fake by looking only at the grading co. who holdered the card. If it is not one of the big four, it is fake.<br /><br />Can you identify the "big four" easily yet? If you have any doubts, work on it. For a '52 Mantle, it is a certain way to tell.

Posted By: <b>Jon Canfield</b><p>Vanessa - don't forget... if a person had a real '52 Topps Mantle graded a 6 and worth $20,000+, would they ever offer it for a $3,000 BIN???<br /><br />Common sense is the best tool for judging real/fake cards. If you see a card on eBay that is worth double or more than the seller is asking for it, trust me - it's a fake. If you see an expensive raw card on eBay and the seller says he needs to sell quickly and can't afford grading, it's fake.

Posted By: <b>Jim VB</b><p>Jim C.,<br /><br />I suspected that a couple of posts about Parliment/Funkadelic and/or James Brown might draw you out. No lyrics today?
