Graded GOOD 2 by PSA (submitted by REA). One of card collecting's greatest classics, Mantle's Bowman rookie card is the key to the 1951 Bowman set and one of the most popular of all postwar baseball cards. Presented is a modestly graded example that is still very presentable and desirable despite its condition flaws, which include several creases. The card exhibits bold colors, flawless registration (which can sometimes be a problem with this card), even corner wear, and centering toward the top right. Free of any print lines, which are extremely common to this card. The reverse is entirely clean, with only evidence of the aforementioned flaws. This is a relatively affordable example of this classic and significant Mickey Mantle card. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+.
