Thanks John. There is no bad news, life is good and if the card is trimmed it won't change that.

Yes. They came in the same lot. The seller was not a dealer in cards. He was liquidating his father's collection. The cards that I bought from him were in those heavy screwdown holders that sometimes damage the cards. I don't know about the upper right edge of the card. I see what you mean about the picture. There is a slight indentation on the edge just above the "AA" in Aaron. But I don't see under magnification any curl or change in the grain of the paper, or any difference from the top edge on the left side of the card. The registration of the picture is tilted, but if you measure the width of the cardboard on both ends it is a perfect 2-5/8 inches.

I guess that I will just send the cards in and hope for the best.

Thanks so much, I really appreciate that you took the time to study the pictures and provided your opinion.

Best regards, Joe

In the pantheon of life experiences this is at the table with the birth of my daughter, my wedding day, and my first kiss. The Mick's arrival may not outweigh those but it is absolutely moving.

I have been the under bidder a few times and/or could never find the right combination of price and condition. However, I saw this example and went for it. Saturated color and perfect registration. The only flaw is a crease in the upper left corner and some chipping that does not impact the image.

Also, I am very happy to have this place to share this experience.

If you ever have the opportunity to add one of these go for it.

Kris
Congratulations Kris on the great pick up. Your Mantle looks awesome.

Best regards,

Joe

Grain of the cut is the number one thing I look for when checking for trimmed.

Any time Joe :-) enjoy the cards !!

52 Mantle...dayuummm!

Added this to my PC at the National:



A card I have long wanted. Not so easy to find. I had a good show at the sales table and decided to splurge.

Default Aaron

Adam, that is a great Aaron. The Topps supers are underrated in my opinion.

Plus the 1969's are particularly tough to find. Pretty card!

While not a high profile card compared to others in this post, it's significant nonetheless.

This is the last card I needed to finish my 1951 Bowman set. It took years to complete but now it's done. I'm moving closer to my full run of Bowman sets with only 1949 and 1953 left to finish
