Recent Vintage Auto Pickups. Appreciate Opinions on Submitting - Mickey Mantle/W. Mays / Red Faber

I appreciate opinions on these cards regarding authenticity, and also if I should submit to PSA for both card and auto grades, auto grade only, or purely authentic auto grades.

I still can't believe I was able to find this 1933 Goudey auto for only $25. It appears to be authentic compared to other Red Faber autos. Please let me know if I am wrong.

This 58 Mays AS is in pretty decent shape and I am considering grading the card and auto. Paid $125. Thoughts are welcome.

**Found this centered 1962 Dream card with both autos of Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays . Paid quite a bit for this one ($700) so hopefully it is real **

    Beautiful autos and nice cards! The PSA app has a quickopinion feature on it where you send the auto in question, and you get a response within 48 hours. I think it may cost a little but should give you a pretty good idea about what you have. Good luck!

    Thanks. I took a look at the psa quick opinion, but I believe it is just for posted auctions on ebay or other sites. I do not see an option you can simply send them a picture without an auction site. If you have used it before in a similar fashion please share.

    *Update

    Mays / Mantle Manager's Dream card is in process of being authenticated finally. I asked for an auto grade only on it.

    Mays and Red Faber will be sent next week as I am just getting back around to submitting.

    For comparison - live pickup - 1985 - now PSA/DNA - these super tickets were really cheap back then!

    Good luck on those. Faber had a really interesting career playing in WS and playing in front of a King. The 1958 Mays looks awesome. Since you asked for opinions I have to be honest the Mantle looks bad. Each letter looks individually "drawn", too many starts than stops, not a fluid signature and varying pen pressure throughout. But with autos not acquired in person it is a chance we take. I have about 10 Mays autos on various items that I acquired in person, he is one of my favorite players.

    Thank you for your input. I was told it was signed in person and they had met Mantle 3 times. In either case I am curious now if you see the same issues with the Mays or do you believe that to be authentic and the Mantle questionable? I hope PSA recognizes it for both signatures as authentic and appreciate their expertise as well.

    Thanks.
