Graded EX-MT 6 by PSA. 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. This card is bright and clean, with light wear on the corners, flawless registration, and centering toward the bottom right with an ever-so-slight characteristic tilt to the image. The reverse is boldly printed with crisp red and black colors. The 1952 Topps #311 Mickey Mantle has long been universally recognized as one of the 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. The market for 1952 Topps #311 Mantles in general appears be on an upward swing - especially for extremely high quality examples. Recently, ultra-high-grade examples have soared to new levels, with sales of $660,000 reported for a PSA NM-MT 8 in February 2017 and $132,000 for a PSA EX-MT 6 example in October 2018. This 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle presents a particularly significant collecting and investing opportunity as it is such an attractive example in a particularly desirable grade! This is a spectacularly bright and clean example of Mickey Mantle's most celebrated card. Reserve $25,000. Estimate $50,000+.
