One of card collecting's greatest classics, Mantle's Bowman rookie card is the key to the 1951 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 a few moderate creases visible on front and back. Graded GOOD 2 by PSA, the card exhibits bold colors, flawless registration (which can sometimes be a problem with this card), and centering very slightly to the top left. Free of any print lines, which are extremely common to this card. The reverse displays two small wax stains. This is a relatively affordable example of this classic and significant Mickey Mantle card. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+.
