    Need opinions on if these Mickey Mantles are original or reprints

    I would love everyones opinion on these Mantle cards. I just don't have enough knowledge about the vintage cards to make a determination if these are fake or not.Message951499536508311.jpgMessage951499536479738.jpgMessage951499536365943.jpgMessage951499536187410.jpgMessage951499536000215.jpgMessage951499536099943[1].jpgMessage951499536245493[1].jpgMessage951499536410901[1].jpg

    Just by doing a quick eye test one of the Mantle Topps cards is super fake while the other is fake. The Bowman's I'm not as familiar with but I'd lean fake as well if they are being sold with the others.

    Hey! Thank you for letting me know. If you don't mind me asking, how can you tell the difference between the originals and reprints? That way I know for the future.

    The Topps cards look too new and in too good of a condition. They were printed on brownish paper back then and the borders on the ones in the photos are too white and the corners are too sharp. The backs also looks poor quality in the print like it is a copy of a copy or something.

    That '58 appears to be fake for sure. Probably the '57 as well. It's really tough to tell without seeing it in person, but I'd almost guarantee that the '58 is fake just by how the front looks. Do you have any other cards from these years to compare the Mantles to? That will be a good place to start.
    #1 want is Peyton Manning cards I need.

    Also looking for:
    Nolan Ryan cards I need, #'d Whitey Ford cards, Peyton Manning, Chris Weinke
