Stunning! This card absolutely glows boasting some of the finest qualities we've seen on the issue. As the market matures, certain cards are elevating towards immortality among investors and we view this '56 Mantle production among those on the rise. Features the 'The Mick's' world class portrait alongside an action shot outfield leap all set against his renowned Triple Crown 1956 performance. Just his 3rd Topps issue, and while certainly not the most expensive, we view this as his most attractive card from all of the 1950s (and that includes the '52 Topps). The offered example is perhaps the best '8.5' we've ever brokered of the card. Dead centered with many attributes of a MINT card. The surfaces and edges are simply flawless for the issue. An exceedingly faint touch to the extreme lower right corner is the only 'flaw' we see. Despite this corner touch, we feel this card is a dead lock for the SGC 9 assessment. Easily ranks in the top 5% of all examples we've seen. Comes highly recommended. One of over 17,000 cards, lots, and sets up for bid in our 6th Auction of 2019.
