Graded EX 5 by PSA. Extremely attractive 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 set, one of the most famous of all cards, and the single most popular and valuable postwar baseball card. This card is bright and crisp, with light wear on the corners, bold colors, and excellent centering (slightly to the bottom right). Downgraded due to a light surface crease just above Mantle's cap. Despite the minor flaw, this is a tremendous mid-grade example with strong visual appeal! 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.
