If anyone sees someone trying to sell a SGC 1.5 '52 Topps Mantle at the National, please pm me. The card belongs to a dealer friend of mine. Thank you.

Any chance he has a Cert #? That would probably be a big help for everyone to look for. Plus those of us not at Nationals can keep an eye out on eBay, etc

That sucks. Hopefully, the owner gets his card back and the perpetrator is caught/prosecuted.

The card has some pretty distinct characteristics....PSA/SGC/BVG should also be alerted in case the card is resubmitted for a new serial#.

Actually held that card yesterday.

He wanted 5300.00 I believe.

I'll look out for it at the show but surely nobody is that dumb.

Did someone ask to see it and he got distracted?

I am almost positive I pointed this card out to my wife in a dealers case.

That blows.

My site www.1982wrestlingallstars.com is under construction and I am buying additional content. I am looking for programs and magazines with the photos or advertisements for the cards.
