That is something I never even considered when it came to battlefield. I assumed she had these cards or purchased/puchases them from sellers looking to unload their collections.

Thinking people actually consign their cards to her never even crossed my mind.

Mantle is still a good buy!! As for who is consigning, maybe they own the cards themselves? Just a wild guess on that though....

It's funny, or odd, the bidders that are attracted to her auctions. Just looking at the bidders list, some of those people have been around for a while, or have purchased quite a bit over a period of time. So much so, imo, that one would think they would be wise to ole Battlefield?

Again, stuff trumps all.

Didn't someone post her obituary a few months ago? It was posited that her family is still running the family business.

If that is true, then, as they say, "The apple doesn't fall far from the tree"

All anyone has to do is go find the legit and unaltered scan of the '52 Mantle to see what they will really get. At 20k, or close to it, it's not a bad buy.

Well, if anybody cares, and I am sure the active bidders do, the '52 Mick went for a tad over $30,000 last night, which might be close to par when it is considered there is no buyers' premium and there no photo shopping done. The winning bidder, with over a thousand feedback is no rookie. Watch out for fireworks when he/she receives the card.

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

Like I said above, hopefully this is the beginning of the end for ole Battlefield?

Does anyone know the person who won the card? It's going to be interesting, like you mentioned, Yoda, when the person receives this card.

Well, I guess to avoid more unwanted attention, old Battlefield decided not to ship the card? Either that or she never had it in her possession to begin with?
What are the chances she is a member here or at least reads some/all of these posts?
I can't imagine this guy being too happy but I don't know what he can do about it?
BEWARE, high $ Mantle card was never shipped. No comm for 8 days, opened case. Buyer: c***c ( 1179Red star icon for feedback score in between 1,000 to 4,999) During past month Feedback conversation
