5-8k assuming its real, if not real $300 if you say you found the card in your grandfather's attic

Lots of fake mantle rookies out there. I'd be very very worried about one that wasn't graded by either PSA, SGC, or BVG. Otherwise it's just too easy to get ripped off.

the card is in the biggest card shop in quebec canada...... don t think its fake but will be impossible to resell in a ksa holder?

Fakes have been seen in KSA holders.

Have you got a back scan? The last fake in a KSA was outed as it had a type I front and a II back.

Looks shady to say the least, no reason selling that card in a KSA holder even as a 1 unless it's bad or you like to burn money.

KSA hasn't got the best reputation, especially when it comes to baseball cards.

Personally, with me, and if I was in the market for one, I would likely avoid this one until I could have it verified by another TPG (PSA or SGC) or by someone who knows their stuff.

Out of curiosity, and only if you want to disclose it, what are they asking for this one?

There is some great info out there about spotting Mantle fakes and here are a few to help get you started.
Good luck.

not a problem the asking price is 11 500 cdn so approximattly 8500 usd
thanks for all these link but i think i will pass on it. it is bad because the card is at only 2 hours from me so no custom fee like when i buy from usa.

i have 11 000 - 12 000 cdn to afford one low grade right now.

I understand the lure/excitement when one can eliminate the shipping costs, duty and the like, but, again, personally, I would want that one re-verified by someone knowledgeable before I dropped that kind of money on it.

I think, based on what I have seen, that is the ballpark, price wise, for that card up here in Canada so it actually isn't out in left field as far as pricing goes but I would, if the seller will oblige, have him send it to PSA or SGC just to make sure first.

If you really want it, tell him if he does that, and it comes back good, then you'll take it. I would assume the seller would eat the shipping/grading costs if you tell him you will pay his asking.

Good luck, but be sure to search thoroughly first.

yeah i will pass on it.
the store said to me he didn t send it to grade because the grading fee is 1000$ for psa...
its a big reputable store in buisiness since 30 years at least. But i think he will need eventually to send it to psa.
