Premier 1950s Investment Piece

A jaw dropping, incredibly high-grade '53 Bowman Color Mickey Mantle on the market this month. This notoriously condition sensitive early Mantle production is nearly impossible to locate in PSA 8.5 with only seven copies having earned the elite assessment. This beauty possesses uncirculated qualities throughout with four virtually untouched corners and MINT card stock. The card possesses clean borders around with faultless edges and wonderful framing. Perhaps what's most impressive about this card is the print with virtually zero in excess; a rare quality for the production. Almost sixty years later, the '53 Bowman Color issue is celebrated for its elegant design and groundbreaking status of using color photography. The last PSA 8.5 to sell at auction brought just under $21,000; we're proud to offer this masterpiece free of reserve to the investment community. Please see the video highlight for more details. One of over 14,000 cards, lots and sets up for bid in our 2nd Auction of 2020. Click on the link above to view the other PWCC auction lots.
