Important Post-War Investment Piece

Easily one of Mickey Mantle's most important cards and one of the two vital stars included in the '53 Topps production (other being Willie Mays). At the time, Mantle's elite productivity was still a few years away, having hit .295 with 21 home runs, 92 RBI and 105 runs scored during his 1953 season. This card is almost never seen in PSA 8 due to its ultra fragile red bottom border which is often plagued by chipping. In fact, less than a hundred PSA 8s exist, a number which may sound high but really doesn't come close to satisfying the hoards of Mantle investors. The offered beauty boasts four of the freshest edges we've seen on the issue, entirely void of any chipping. The surfaces are sensational with vivid color, precise registration and virtually flawless print. Furthermore, the card possesses rock-solid NM-MT corners and card stock. In the world of sports card commodities, few reside as high on the hill as this production. Comes with our highest recommendation. One of over 16,000 cards, lots, and sets up for bid in our 10th Auction of 2019. Click on the link above to view the other PWCC auction lots.
