My 1968 Mantle

Postby Onenutkruker » Wed Apr 18, 2007 8:08 pm

I sold almost all of my cards on ebay about 7 yrs ago and did pretty good Ikept one card I consider a mint 1968Topps Mantle for my 2 year old son. Should I get this professionally graded? I stopped collecting when the whole PSA or whatever it is now was coming out.

Get professional advice. My grandfather sold his Ted Williams card last year for a good amount of dollars. Check it out.

I'd definitely get it graded. If it's in really good shape, that does increase the value considerably. ;-D

I've seen good conditioned cards go for 8.0 on the graded scale. A poorly graded Mantle is worth less than a non graded Mantle.

Evenn if it gaets a terrrible mark it will garuntee its authenticity and help its re-sale value tremendously. if you do get it graded go through http://www.beckett.com and make sure you get the mail insured.
