Most Important Post-War Rookie Card in Hobby

A tremendous offering of an illustrious card. So unique it it's design and placement, the #311 Mantle rookie is not only a beautiful design, but it also kicks off what is undeniably the most illusive series in mainstream collecting. So often the victim of poor print and horrid centering, the '52 Topps Mantle rarely shines as bright as this example. 65/35 centering in both directions with fresh edges, and four mostly square, evenly worn corners. The print, color, and focus are all exceptional for the issue and worthy of a much higher technical grade than 'EX'. Everything is where it should be in upholding the lofty SGC designation. This comes with our highest recommendation. Part of a staggering run of mid-hi grade '52 Topps cards, nearly all assessed by PSA in the EX to NRMT condition range. As fine as any grouping we've brokered in recent times. One of over 9000 cards, lots, and sets up for bid in our 4th Auction of 2014. Click on the link above to view the other PWCC auction lots.
