  • Card looks fake. I know the flip is old, but I am telling you, the card doesn't look real.

    Edit to add: I tried to enlarge the scan, but it won't let me.....buyer beware.

    Marshall still has it listed. Well this guy only shows the front of the card.

    Marshall only shows the front of the card. Maybe we should contact Joe?



    Good for you.
  • I did a google search and pulled this picture up. Maybe I should put mine on Ebay?

  • You would figure a card like that would have an ORIGINAL scan and also include back photos and of every corner.

    Yeah, lets see if this auction even finished or gets closed out.

    I agree with Levi.
    My 1910 Champions T218 set at 100% with a GPA of 5.01, and all 153 cards are scanned.
  • is it just me or is that mantle tilted? looks like it has a tilt and should not be graded a 10. that auction has to be a scam nobody would sell that card on ebay. marshall is probably pretty angry about this. I remember him saying he was offered 2 million for his 10 and turned it down. marshall your mantle has bad tilt i would sell it for that 2 million
  • I'm about to list mine....7 day auction.....that would be a trip! Both on Ebay at the same time...
  • I started to ask the seller about a scan of the back, just for fun, mess with the seller, when I noticed that one day shipping was available and I would get it by October 26th thru November 2nd...!!!Guess printing times have increased!

    Maurice clearly knows cards and I think adds some strong value to this board. I don't collect baseball cards but this members knowledge has proven to be very strong and I am glad he continues to post information.


    It may be a well known dealer or it may not be but as a bystander I truly appreciate the great information this member adds. To suggest this member is a troll or some other negative member is foolish relative to the strong information this poster delivers.


    Maurice I may be in the minority but please keep posting I like what you are bringing to the table.

    Does not look like a legit listing to me either. But just wondering why an ebay seller with 100% feedback and no negatives and a score of 485 would do this. Kind of odd if you ask me.

    Levi can we see your 9?
  • i think the 8 has the best eye appeal out of all the mantles listed in photograde link . the 9 and 10 clearly have tilts and that 9 is fuggly if u ask me.
  • My guess is someone got his/her ebay account information, I doubt it's really the true seller doing this as this has happened before....sorry but I see the humor in this one, being an ebayer for many years, there are a few things that I would look at before putting up multiple $1000's on a card that is literally the holy grail (or the top 5) of cards to have...And Maurice is 100% correct....totally bogus!

    485 is not very high. The thought of a 6/7 figure payday makes people think they can do whatever. Internet crime is the fastest growing crime in the past 15 years....
  • this auction will be taken down real fast. no way this dumb scammer makes a penny. this has to be one of ebays dumbest attempted scams ever for sports cards.

    I garuntee Levi would be selling his 9 for at LEAST 50-75% HIGHER than any price a 10 would get.
  • if levi had a 10 he would ask more for it then what the PSA 8 wagner sells for by 4 or 5 times lol

    It was tough having to sell almost my entire collection of ~1,700 PSA graded cards from the 1910s - 1970's and my ~250 - 300 Graded Packs from the 50s, 60s and 70s. But when your daughter AND your wife are diagnosed with Cancer, sometimes you don't have a choice. One day I'll get some of them back!

  • 50k and climbing wonder what it will be before its shut down. I am sure marshall will see this on ebay soon.
  • kmnortonkmnorton Posts: 1,016 ✭✭✭
    The seller's feedback certainly does point to a big time player that deals in holy grail cards. I'm going to bid one billionty dollars.

  • This seller DID purchase some Don Mattingly cards in July for 45 cents, so I'm pretty sure
    they're a legit seller of this Mantle card. Makes perfect cents to me.
  • galaxy27galaxy27 Posts: 1,623 ✭✭✭
    It would behoove those who are interested in this card to dig a little deeper into this guy's feedback. Years ago he appeared to have quick trigger fingers with sellers, and on multiple occasions he filed claims for nonreceipt. Included are feedback revisions that were initially of the red variety, even after sellers appeared to have rectified the situation with him via a refund.

    Interpret that as you may.
  • clearly not legit...probably wont be around for the afternoon folks even to look at it
  • Its the same one used on PSA's grading examples. Which does not look real, but only an example.

  • Sweet PSA 10. I think I'm going to message him now and see if he would consider accepting Western Union for payment...

  • I just tried bidding $250,000 but eBay wouldn't let me. Everything on eBay is about protecting the buyer, except when the seller is a scam artist.

    While, I, too, agree, I think he sometimes tends to present in a way that shows that he has an axe to grind. In those cases, either leave the axe out of it or explain the axe up front. The famous "safety bid" thread was a good example. If you have an opinion of someone beyond the issue at hand then you should be upfront with who you are: as are the rules on Net54.

  • Why are you guys being so lame about my Mantle listing?
  • My apologies...good luck with the sale. I will be listing mine next week after yours ends.
  • hammeredhammered Posts: 2,676 ✭✭✭
    so you must understand before bidding that the handling time may be up to 30 business days for an item of this caliber

    Translation: so you must understand before bidding that I will need up to 30 business days to take your funds and escape to someplace tropical


  • << <i>My apologies...good luck with the sale. I will be listing mine next week after yours ends. >>

    Thank you.

    I'll also be selling my PSA 11 Mays from the same set next week, so please look out for that.

  • Good job everybody, hopefully you saved somebody some heartache.

    It must have been removed by Ebay because I had it on watch and it just disappeared instead of no longer available.

    What I find is most upsetting about this matter is that there were people actually bidding on this item, I hope they were not board members as I would like to think they are a little smarter than that!image
  • A friend of mine works with (not employed by) the ebay fraud team. I asked him to help and he (I believe) got it taken down.....I know he reported it and every time he reports something...poof.

    Are we sure he didn't acquire as he states? Maybe a few free lawn cutting coupons combined with catching MF in a week moment? I'm sure we ruined buddy's holiday anyway.
