(LOT 66)
1967 Topps #150 Mickey Mantle (PSA Mint 9) - Only 2 Examples Graded Higher!

Not since 1963 did the Topps Chewing Gum Company choose to utilize a Mickey Mantle portrait image on his Topps subject, with his 1967 Topps #150 memento presented here in a mesmerizing PSA Mint 9 holder. Bested by a mere 2 PSA encapsulated copies, its unparalleled aesthetics place it as one of the premier '67 Topps Mantle cards on the planet, and one that will certainly find its way to an esteemed PSA Registered compilation. Simply stated, we have NEVER seen a 1967 Topps #150 Mantle subject with the nearly "dead-on" 50/50 centering as this seemingly "one in a lifetime" gem that also reveals virtually no "tilt". Indeed, collectors would surely agree that most of the existing 1967 Topps Mantles (as well as ANY 1967 Topps subject) reveal some issue with regard to centering and "tilts", with this miraculous 52-year old masterpiece atypically presenting itself in immaculate fashion.

The continuous soaring price tags of Mickey Mantle baseball cards continues to stampede ahead, and with no end in sight for this incredible phenomenon, hobbyists continue seeking the Mick's" premier cardboard artifacts. One look at this museum worthy masterpiece easily places it in that aforementioned pinnacle category. Mickey's good-natured smile literally jumps off the card, ably assisted by a brilliant array of rich hues, and a sparkling powder blue background. The aforementioned near-perfect centered image is situated between four blinding white borders, and the blistering sharp corner tips as well as the pristine-like surfaces complete this highly coveted gem that proudly stands tall as one of the "Commerce Comet's" finest preserved subjects on the planet!
