Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA. One of card collecting's classics, Mantle's #311 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 presents with bold colors, light corner wear (a bit more on the lower left), and centering toward the left. The reverse is clean and centered to the extreme top (when held horizontal as intended). 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 card presents an outstanding opportunity to acquire an exceptionally attractive example of Mickey Mantle's most celebrated card in an extremely desirable condition, yet very possibly at a small fraction of the cost of a higher-grade example.
