Among The Finest Investment Pieces In The Market

When one speaks of all-time Baseball greats, Mantle's name is on the tip of your tongue. Although he experienced great success in his first five seasons as a Yankee it was really his 1956 season which secured him as an all-time great and a potential threat to break baseball's greatest hitting record. Even Bill Dickey predicted Mantle would break every record except Lou Gehrig's streak. During this season Mantle won the triple crown by hitting 52 Home Runs with 130 RBI and a batting average of .353. Due to this historic season and the fact that the 1956 Topps issue is among Mantle's most beautiful card, this is an exceedingly important investment card which is highly prized in PSA 9. These elite offerings only surface but once or twice a year as the vast majority of them are locked up in private investment portfolios. The offered specimen is the most recent addition to the PSA 9 family and boasts undeniable MINT presentation throughout. The surfaces glisten with beauty, showing tremendous gloss, bright color and flawless clarity. All four corners are dagger sharp and the centering is 45/55 (so close to perfect). This card redefines what's possible for the issue and sets the tone for what an ultra high-grade 1956 Topps Mantle can truly offer. We love this card and recommend it for the finest portfolio. One of over 17,000 cards, lots, and sets up for bid in our 6th Auction of 2019. Click on the link above to view the other PWCC auction lots.
