Critically Important Investment Piece

The most important and desirable post-war trading card in existence, the '52 Topps Mickey Mantle rookie will remain a bucket list type piece for any high-end investor. What we have here is a highly impressive SGC 5.5 example which generally displays better eye appeal and qualities than the grade assigned. This beauty possesses wonderful overall centering; although not perfect this example shows better than nearly all other copies. All four corners are square, the periphery is largely void of imperfections and the stock is free of wrinkles. Perhaps what's most impressive about this fine-art equivalent investment piece is the surfaces, possessing a bright, crystal clear image of the legendary Yankee Hall of Famer. Almost entirely free of excess print with clean borders and a thick layer of gloss present. The demand for this significant kick-start to the ultra difficult high-number series continues to only increase with time. From an investment perspective, they don't get much better than this. An all-around stunning offering which we've chosen to further highlight via video. Mark your calendar as this masterpiece closes on the eleventh of September. Enjoy! Part of an extensive run of '52 Topps examples on the market this month. Nearly the entire set is represented here, mostly in mid-grade condition. One of over 15,000 cards, lots, and sets up for bid in our 9th Auction of 2019. Click on the link above to view the other PWCC auction lots.
