Click on the link (post 6 ) to the Bussineau auction and don't enlarge the card. Can you see the crease? Same thing with the black dot, to me.

The thing is Leon, if you enlarge the Bussineau card, you can see both. If you enlarge the Battlefield card, you can't see either. I know Battlefield has it so you can't enlarge the pic, but I have a touchscreen laptop that allows me to zoom in easily. The black dot is gone, the crease as well.

Ok, I Hadn't scrolled down to see the larger scan on ebay. I didn't realize there was one.
Yeah, they don't look to be there (wrinkle or dot) on those scans. By reading their recent feedback it looks like more of the same. ...

I doubt it's a woman. Men use their wife or girlfriend's name in their Paypal account, email and mailing address due to many reasons (tax purposes, hide their identity, etc.)

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


...who in their right mind consigns a '52 Mantle to Battlefield .?

It's not even a good photoshop job, you can clearly see where the touch-up was done. It's blurry in the area where the crease was. Who is going to receive this card and not loose their mind when they see it has a crease, maybe two? WTF are these people thinking?

My thoughts exactly. This isn't some run of the mill card. Nobody is spending this sort of money and will be content with what they receive.

Whether it is photoshopped or not, PSA gave it the grade!!! Would you as seller go out on the limb to state that there are no creases on a graded card. I did it once and used the phrase "appears to have no creases" but wouldn't do it again.

Who would spend that amount of dough on a card where you can't zoom the image?
