Default Battlefields Part Deaux

There is an interesting new listing by our old pal Battlefields: a PSA 4 '52 Topps
Mantle and a '53 PSA7 Topps Mantle. With a 7 day auction it will be interesting to see how much bidder interest is aroused and where prices go. The '52 Topps, which in my humble opinion is strong, is now about $10,000. Of course, some questions might arise, such as shill bidding, unmatched card and holder, has Carol found religion, etc. Should be fun to watch if nothing else.

Battlefield has auctioned graded cards before. They were still photoshopped and returned by the buyers if I am not mistaken.

I don't know, obviously, with a 100% certainty, but I think, if these Mantle's are anything like her previous cards, there will be some serious repercussions if these also turn out to be doctored.

This could, imo, be the beginning of the end for old battlefield,,,,,,,,,,hopefully!

That same Mantle sold for 25,440 7/24/15 at Greg Bussineau Auctions. Anyone that has VCP can take a closer look at the card.

original auction

Beautiful card, but obvious crease is obvious (crease has been touched up on battlefield scan, as usual). Also looks like a minor black dot was cleaned up from the upper right blue portion.

The current auction item description....

Up for auction is a 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle RC #311 vintage baseball card. This card has been graded a PSA 4 VG-EX! This card has no creases, light corner wear, near perfect centering, beautiful color, awesome eye appeal, and a beautiful clean back. There are no pinholes, markings, paper loss, or any damage of that kind.


That said, the previous description in the Bussineau Auction read...

It is very nicely centered with immaculate print quality, a beautiful unblemished aqua-blue background, and an ultra-bold crystal-clear portrait image of Mantle.

Bussineau seems to steer one away from thinking there is a wrinkle or crease. But at least you could see it.

Battlefield gets away with the description because it could be called a wrinkle vs a crease. But the photo is another story. I hope the f*cker goes down! And I wish I knew who was actually running Battlefield's page. I mentioned before that I traded messages and sure didn't get the feeling it was a woman communicating with me. Then again, I know women that talk like trucker's so I guess it's possible. The PayPal billing states Carol Battles. Could be a husband or son running it?

Are you talking about the white line (wrinkle) above his left hand, near the border? I am not seeing the touch ups yet.
These old eyes aren't seeing well these days.

PS. Never mind. I just went to the auction on ebay. I think that scan is just wrong. Hopefully someone else will too. The thin white line can't be seen at all. It's magic. That said the scan is so small there is a chance they didn't do anything to it. I looked at the smallest image on the Bussineau site and it sort of looks similar. Misleading at best.....but not sure if it goes over the line to get pulled?

This thread should be-
Battlefield part douche. Or
Battlefield behind a douche.
I think either is appropriate.

Misleading? Christ, they photoshopped out the crease and the black dot... period. This person(s) commits fraud everyday.
