Looks good to me with the wax stain but I'd have to feel the card!

If it's a fake it's the best one I have ever seen. Of course if it is the best one I've ever seen that doesn't really help you out!

The uneven deckle edge cut is also a sign it may be legit along with the wax stains, nicely centered too.

It looks great to me. I would bank on it being real. The fact it is not graded concerns me only in that it may not have graded up to expectations. Looks like a nicely centered 3-4 to me.

I'm in agreement with others. That one actually looks real. I would get it graded as quick as possible once it is in hand though. I bought a Leaf Paige rookie that I thought was real. It wasn't. Not saying the Mantle isn't real - just protect yourself.

Not sure if it's good, but it doesn't look bad to me.

Looks good to me, but I have seen fake wax stains before. Borders do not look artificially aged, the layers of paper look correct, color & toning on the face & bat look correct. Corner wear seems legit.
