Graded EX+ 5.5 by SGC. Extremely attractive mid-grade example of the 1952 Topps #311 Mickey Mantle. One of card collecting's great classics, Mantle's Topps rookie card is the key to the 1952 Topps set, one of the most famous of all cards, and the single most popular and valuable postwar baseball card. The offered example is bright and crisp, with excellent centering (slightly to the lower right) and light touches of wear on the corners. The reverse is clean with bold printing. The 1952 Topps #311 Mickey Mantle has long been universally recognized as one of most iconic "blue chips" of all vintage baseball cards, and even just a glance at sales records clearly shows that over the years it has consistently risen in value in all grades. This 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle presents a particularly significant collecting and investing opportunity as it is such a strong and attractive example in a particularly desirable grade! This is a spectacularly bright, fresh, and clean example of Mickey Mantle's most celebrated card. Reserve $10,000. Estimate (open).
