Have a few items for sale currently on eBay, and will offer them to board members with free shipping and prices lower than eBay via PayPal FNF. Thank you for looking and more items to come with some big cards for sale coming up ;) All purchases are via PayPal FnF, and items will ship same day as payment is received.

**1953 Topps Willie Mays SGC 45 = 3.5 High end and looks PSA 6/6.5. - **Last one sold for over $1100 and will take $885 dlvd with signature confirmation and insurance.

Beautiful card that looks like a PSA 6-7 all around. Card features strong corners, excellent registration and focus, and amazing color. Only thing knocking it down is a small scratch/crease on the lower bottom right which is difficult to see, and does not detract from the overall eye appeal of the card. Any questions please let me know.

**12 card lot of High end 1956 Topps PSA baseball cards ** all cards are beautifully centered and have great eye appeal. All are in the range of PSA 5-7, and I will take $138 for the entire lot of 12 cards - hard to get them graded for a cheaper price. Features Adcock, Avila, and Virdon along with others.

    Dan

    You're welcome and glad you liked the card. These two are going up next for sale - just have to figure out pricing on the Mantle first based on recent sales.

  • MarsAttacksMarsAttacks Posts: 225 ✭✭✭

    Having seen that gorgeous 51B Mantle up close at the NSCC, whomever buys it is going to end up with one of the finest Mantle rookies in existence that's not in an 8 or 9 holder.

    Go Dodgers!
  • KendallCatKendallCat Posts: 1,786 ✭✭✭

    You mean the aggregate of the last 7 sales? Looks more like $45K+ to me.

  • LOL! Still quoting 2015-16 prices here as gospel. Awesome.

    Paul, you go figure it out. If you think the price is fair why
    don't you walk the walk and buy it. You know exactly what I'm saying.

    That said, if Kendall can snag a buyer at the price he wants, more power to him. I'll be first to give him kudos.

    Just a question on the 51 Mantle. I see many of these cards that have "staining" on the front and back. Your card is not stained on the back, but it does appear to have some browning on the front. It that an accurate or inaccurate description of the front ? Not trying to put your card down, just trying to understand this issue and why and why not some of these cards get brown over time and some don't.

  • KendallCatKendallCat Posts: 1,786 ✭✭✭

    As far as the price I have it in the high $15k range but will come off it some. Probably low $15's to high $14k range will do it. It is priced somewhat strong, but it is also a card that is nicer than 90% of the examples out there in any grade. Those that saw it in person at the National can attest that from a foot away the card looks like a $100k+ PSA 8. If someone wants a very nice Mantle without the price tag it is a great card, and several PSA 4's have sold in the $13-14k range with 5/5.5's in the $20-23k range. If it does not sell I have zero problem with keeping the card - can never go wrong with a nice Mantle rookie.

    As far as the question about staining or toning I am not real familiar with it since this is the only 51 Bowman card I have ever owned. I know it happens with this issue, and not really sure why.
    Thank you for the questions.

    KC

  • What's the issue with it? I think that would be helpful for potential buyers to know, given that the card looks nicer than the grade.

    From above:
    Amazing Mantle rookie card which would not look out of place in a PSA 7/8 holder. Sharp corners, amazing gloss and color, and perfect T/B centering and very close to 50/50 centering L/R. Card has amazing eye appeal, and except for a light crease which is well hidden in the wrinkles of Mantle's uniform this card would be worth $20-30k more at auction. With several recent sales of cards in a similar grade recently in the $20-23k range this example presents a great buy. Any questions please let me know.

    Thank you Vintage for the help. Reading is fundamental :D

  • Sorry, I missed that part as I was too focused on the part that said it would be worth $20-30K more at auction which, based on recent sales, it clearly would not be.

    I think you're missing what he said....
    Card has amazing eye appeal, and except for a light crease which is well hidden in the wrinkles of Mantle's uniform this card would be worth $20-30k more at auction.

    Thus, if it didn't have the crease, it would possibly grade higher (like between 7-8) which would then coincide with his projection of 20 to 30k more.

    I think you're taking things that he says out of context, JMO.

    Enjoy your cardboard...

  • The last two 7's sold for $27K and $25K respectively. Now, I'm not a math wizard but my calculator tells me the differences between those numbers & $16K are $11K and $9K, respectively.

    He said 7/8. You can a la carte some low end 7's to support your theory all you want, I guess.

    Great card KC and good luck with your sale!

  • I'm citing the most recent sales. But go ahead, cling to 2015-16 like today isn't happening. Kendall's card, while very nice, would not be an 8 without the crease.

  • KendallCatKendallCat Posts: 1,786 ✭✭✭

    Mays is now $1150
    Ruth is $250
    51 Mantle is now $15,400

    All via PayPal FnF and shipping and insurance is included. Will discount for a combo of Mantle and Mays if bought together. Thank you for looking.

    Agreed - I inspected this card at the National and it is truly incredible. Crease is really tough to pick up, and the rest of the card is fantastic.

    I'll take the Ruth, Keith. One can never have too many Babe's

    All yours Dan and will get it out to you tomorrow. Thank you.

  • The Mantle is incredibly nice. With a 5.5 selling for over $23k recently, as well as some other private sales of psa 4's/5's, this one is priced right. People are willing to pay strong for high eye appeal Mantles, and there is no reason to underprice it. VCP is only part of the story. A lot of sales happen in the private world and at shows.

  • That's a fair point, Mr. Card Country. But if you bought it to resell, you would have to ask $18K minimum to make any real money on it, and with the market being so volatile and trending down as a whole, you could just as easily end up underwater on it.

  • KendallCatKendallCat Posts: 1,786 ✭✭✭

    Happy Labor Day bump!

  • KendallCatKendallCat Posts: 1,786 ✭✭✭

    Mays is on eBay starting at $995

    Mantle is getting lots of interest but eBay fees would be about $900 or so if I sold it at $15k - will take $14.3k via PayPal FnF and pass along savings to a board member.

  • KendallCatKendallCat Posts: 1,786 ✭✭✭

    Judge is sold.

    Mays starting at $898 on eBay and will take $965 for it.

    1951 Mantle will do for $14.3k dlvd with insurance.

    Thank you for looking.

    Thank you for the nice note about the Mantle, and I go back and forth each day on whether I should sell it or sit on it for a while.
