Default I decided to buy the John Dunlop 1894 Mayo football card and not the 52 Mantle PSA 4

Well guys I decided to buy the 1894 John Dunlop football card instead of the 52 Topps Mantle card...after doing a lot of reading for the last couple of hours and finding out that the Dunlop only has 10 known copies that exist in the whole world I just had to have it. The Mantle can be found any day of the week....not the case with the Dunlop Holy Grail of Football cards.

I'm not familiar with the Dunlop card, but you make a good point about the easily accessible '52 Mantle.

To each his own!

If I really want another Mantle I will find one no problem I just find it very very cool to own a Holy Grail card in any sport.

So I guess without knowing I am sticking with vintage cards one way or another.

Yes one member here talked about the Holy Grail of football cards and I could simply not get it out of my mind so decided to forfeit the 52 Mantle (the seller knows we just got off the phone and he agreed to sell me the Dunlop instead of the 52 Mantle).

No I am very very serious. I wanted to collect rare cards can't get much rarer than a card with less than 10 known to exist in all grades. The Mantle can be found any day of the week.
