Was out of town on business this week, and found a cool little card shop there. The guy gave me some very reasonable prices. The Mantle is really freaking nice, sharper corners than this pic reveals. The Aaron and Williams are a bit rough surface wise, but no wrinkles and nice color on both, and the price was right.



When I was a kid, I was waiting in line at a card show to get Alan Trammell's autograph, and Dave Winfield walked by me. He literally brushed me aside to cut across the line, and I just looked up and stared. To this day, I have never seen such a huge and impressive man. He was like a Greek god. I'll never forget that, and it's cool to finally have his rookie card.

For some reason, off centered cards from 1968 don't really bother me nearly as much as cards from other years. Maybe the burlap creates an optical illusion, making it stand out less to the eye? I dunno, perhaps I'm alone in that regard. And what doesn't bother me in any way, shape or form is the fact I grabbed this Mantle (not off of ebay) for much less than what straight 6's sell for...

Very nice. I would be super happy with that for the price of a 6. In recent years, I've moved more into the camp of "can live with OC" if other attributes of the card are sharp. The lower the grade card I scope out, I want the centering to be better. But increasingly if I'm looking for a card with nice coloring and registration without creases, I'm more lenient on centering for some reason than I ever used to be. You are right, there are deals to be had like that out there.
