This is pretty painful to look at. You want to turn away, but you can't:

Look at his other feedback, though... seems to tell the story of the authenticity of the card.

Microfiber cloth would have that as a PSA 8, no doubt.

This is worse than one I saw in person that had pin holes and cat ears drawn on him. If only those kids would have known what we know now..

I can't believe people are actually bidding on that.

I like cards like that. Shows they were loved, enjoyed, and just a fun part of life. Provided, of course, it is real.

They wouldnt be worth as much because everyone back then would have bought them and kept them perfect, and they would never had dumped cases overboard!

These fakes are everywhere, They list it in the description that it's being sold as a reprint and they sell their counterfeit cards for $60-100. They also seem to have a bunch of different accounts selling them. They basically reprint old cards (I've seen 52 Mantle, Ruth Goudey, 54 Bowman Ted Williams, Ty Cobb, etc.) And then beat them up to make them look weathered. All seem to have some stupid description "Found this in an attic" or "Part of grandfather's collection"

I mean, I guess the old PT Barnum adage is in play here, but it kind of gets annoying to sift through all of these listings. I will give this one credit, though, at least it's comical. And it's the first one I've seen with a questionable authenticity PSA sticker attached to it.

And the kicker is, if you look up the certification#, it isn't found in PSA database

The card stock looks pretty real. I'd imagine that's going to push over 4 figures, right?

If it was a fake card to start with then the rounding of the lower right corner (as seen from the back) is a fakery of genius.

Although it's absolutely hideous, I'd definitely pay a few hundred for it.

It's fake. I have seen tons of psa 1 mantle rookies and not one of them had perfectly rounded corners. That is always a dead give away.

somebody find that Bryce Harper card from a few months ago where the guy draws on it calling him a clown, etc.... and then put it up side by side to this one.

To state the obvious (and to continue what has been mentioned)...

IT'S FAKE.

While some posts may have a tinge of sarcasm, there are some that seem to give this card more legitimacy than they should.

If it were genuine I would buy it for the right price. Better than never owning one, just barely.
