Picked up these two recently. I have gone a while without buying anything and decided to start again. Am trying to focus on lower grade with decent centering and nice eye appeal.
I think I did well with these two:

That is a great-looking Robinson '4'! Nice job!

Gorgeous Robinsons! My question is, how the hell did that '54 get a 4 from PSA? What am I not seeing?

...any wrinkle on the front , no matter how hard it is to find ( for us ) is an automatic technical "4"...there's a lot of beautiful "4"'s out there..

Thanks! I'm really really happy with it.
There is a light wrinkle along his upper lip. It is a beautiful card and that brings the grade down.

You guys have opened my eyes to the potential hidden in any PSA 4 slab. The '54 Jackie is a great card. The '57 Mantle is the best centering I have ever seen on that card. Excellent additions and probably easy on the wallet. Well played all around.
