Why Investors Should Buy Mickey Mantle's 'True' 1951 Bowman Rookie Card Instead Of His 1952 Topps

Posted May 14, 2019 by David Seideman
Forbes

Last year, Super Bowl champion Evan Mathis, sold a mint PSA 9 (on a scale of one to ten) 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle for $2.9 million in a Heritage auction. If one of the three existing gem mint PSA 10s came up for sale, it would command $10 million.

“In terms of price point, the 1952 Topps Mantle is king and will remain king for a long time,” Brent Huigens, the CEO of PWCC, the largest seller of investment trading cards, told me.

Mantle’s 1952 Topps marks his first appearance in the most popular post-war set. But, of course, his true rookie is his 1951 Bowman. Since the dawn of the hobby in the 1970s, collectors have wondered whether the Bowman is a good buy.

Huigens says absolutely yes. In fact, he believes the Bowman is now a better choice than the Topps.
