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?

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.

Place your bets people...

He wants to make a quick hit, and leave the country. He knows PayPal won't cover a charge that big. He is pratically begging for a cashiers check.....

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 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.

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....
