Default Add 5 more high grade 52 Mantles to the pile

As someone you thinks this will happen more commonly as the time goes by and the boomers pass on, I believe this is a good example for the folks that think nothing better than a 3 hasn't been graded.

Not sure how common such an event will be over time.

That said, wish one of those bright, crisp specimens was centered.

I thought from that article they looked decently centered as well; check out the images on the Sports Collectors Daily article— the 8.5 is significantly off top to bottom and has some tilt. It will still likely command a big hammer price, just not what it would get if it was closer to 50:50. The others are all off or tilted as well.

At the bottom of the article linked below, there are full images of each card slabbed. The color, gloss, corners, and overall crispness are certainly impressive, just the usual centering issues.

Matt it's all a matter of what your eye looks for I guess, to me that looks like a well-centered card that I would call slightly off top to bottom.

My parents grew up in West Hartford and are close in age to this guy...not being that big of a town in those days, they likely knew him. This guy would have been a good friend to have.

The more a card will cost me, the more demanding I get with centering

Seems to me the reverse is true too -- the more demanding you get with centering, the more a card will cost you.

I am looking forward to seeing that bright yellow Leaf Robinson closer. It looks amazing.
