Posted By: <b>Eric Brehm</b><p>This one looks legitimate -- it is graded EX 5 by Beckett with these subgrades: Centering 7, Corners 4.5, Edges 7, and Surface 7. Looks like a very nice card. I wonder what all those white streaks are; they don't appear to be on the card since they are in different locations on different images. Any opinions on this one?<br /><br /><img src="http://i143.photobucket.com/albums/r143/ebrehm1/52T311Mantle1.jpg"> <img src="http://i143.photobucket.com/albums/r143/ebrehm1/52T311Mantle2.jpg"><br /><img src="http://i143.photobucket.com/albums/r143/ebrehm1/52T311Mantle1b.jpg"> <img src="http://i143.photobucket.com/albums/r143/ebrehm1/52T311Mantle2b.jpg">

Posted By: <b>MEWheat</b><p>whoever took the photo did not use a flash, but instead opted to shine a strong light from the right rear. He probably can't get a clear scan because of the thick BVG cases.<br /><br />It sure looks to me like the white streaks are an artifact from photographing the cards.<br /><br />Best of luck,<br /><br />MEWheat

Posted By: <b>Doug</b><p>I don't have a scanner so I've had this problem before. I would agree that it looks like a glare from a light shining on the holder.
