Critically Important Post-War Investment Piece

On the auction block this month is a rookie card of significant market importance. For many, the '51 Bowman Mickey Mantle rookie card is a holy grail type investment piece which takes many years or penny-pinching to acquire, especially in such amazing condition. This card in PSA 5 only continues to increase in value as demand for this tradable asset grows. The offered specimen possesses an ultra clean front surface with color that really pops, outstanding clarity and strong print for the issue. Free of typical roller marks with very little excess print within the typically plagued black box that contains Mantle's printed name. The periphery is void of chipping, the card stock is absent of wrinkles and three corners are NRMT. A typical centering shift and a modest touch to the upper right corner keeps from grading higher. All told, this is a fantastic investment piece and a very difficult grade to improve upon. Please see the video highlight for more details on this card. One of over 15,000 cards, lots, and sets up for bid in our 11th Auction of 2019. Click on the link above to view the other PWCC auction lots.
