Default Grading Help on a '57 Mantle...

Estimates? I have this up raw on eBay for $399 now and I'm considering pulling it down and sending off to PSA. What do you guys think?

Sorry these are pictures and not scans...





Thanks team.

Tough with the angled scan but it looks like a 5 easy to me. Centering is off but so are 90% of 57T Mantles. Image is crisp, color is great and corners look good. Don't see any creases or anything.

I say grade it so you get more eyes and potential buyers.

Is there a pen mark on the back above "topps #95"? Kind of looks like there is. If it has a pen mark, it hurts the grade significantly.

I think it is a little printing spot, not pen.

@GC180 bottom 2 corners look bent and the top 2 look to be soft.

Yeah, I was thinking 4-5. I'd take $300 probably but might just grade it out.

If its just a print spot, I see no reason why that card won't grade a 5. I assume the bottom 2 corners are worse than the top 2 based on the pictures. And they easily fit within the PSA 5 guidelines for a 5. Nice card.

Cool, thanks. Yeah, the top 2 are fine. That's why I used that angle.
