    FAKE or NOT???

    This guy i am talking to says he got a bunch of cards at an estate sale. Among those cards are a 1933 Babe Ruth #53 and a 1952 topps Mickey Mantle. I know it's probably a long shot, but I wanted to post pictures and see if anyone could tell me if it is original or fake/reprint.

    Greetings:
    Ask for an opposite side as well. For both cards that would help in the investigation of real or not.

    Don't really know about the Ruth but I'd lean fake. The Mantle I'd say is almost 100% fake. The dead giveaway is the rounding of the corners on the edges. Cards don't do that over time so fakers have to make them not sharp so they wear the corners but these all look the same and for a card that is in otherwise great condition why would just those corners take all the abuse? lol
