Description

Graded 30 Good 2 by SGC. Simply breathtaking 1952 Topps Baseball #311 Mickey Mantle rookie high number. The young Oklahoma superstar tightly grips his lumber of choice as he glimpses toward his Hall of Fame future including 536 home runs, three Most Valuable Player awards and 12 World Series appearances. As the undisputed most celebrated modern trading card, this rendition of the iconic “Mick” transcends the sports collecting hobby and merits considerable attention in any environment. Unlike so many of its peers, the offered Mantle escaped excessive handling from a youthful admirer and is still a viable copy for the prospective set builder. With exception to scant obverse flaking to the facial region along with a well concealed horizontal crease, this centerpiece otherwise presents in mid-grade condition with even corner wear and relatively crisp edges. Errant right justified centering is offset by a bright blue setting along appealing flesh tone and uniform accents. The reverse heralding Mantle’s phenom status displays strong red-and-black text.
