Description: The single most important post-war trading card in existence and sets the tone for what's possible for trading cards as an investment caliber alternative asset. Year after year, the '52 Topps Mickey Mantle pushes the limits of what's possible and continues to be the undisputed king of blue-chips. With Mickey's extreme popularity and the fact that this card is among the market's most celebrated investment pieces, there's no reason to believe that the upward trend will stop any time soon. Offered here is an earth shattering example which in truth, speaks for itself. Residing in a rarely seen PSA 7 holder, the presented piece easily ranks among the finest copies we've had the pleasure of brokering in some time. Boasting aesthetically pleasing print, color and imagery throughout. The fragile periphery is void of typical chipping with clean borders around. The card stock is free of any wrinkles or creases with thick gloss and a crystal clear illustration of a the legendary Yankee. Exceedingly light corner touches and a typical centering shift keeps from grading higher. The '52 Topps Mantle sets off the final series of what has become the most iconic and significant trading card set from the modern bubble gum era, and is the poster child for Topps as a trading card brand. Easily among the most exciting cards in the market and one of our favorites. A fine-art equivalent piece which comes with PWCC's highest recommendation. Please see the video highlight for more details on this world-class offering. Enjoy! One of over 14,000 cards, lots and sets up for bid in our 5th Auction of 2020.
