1952 Bowman #101 Mickey Mantle PSA 8 NM-MT
MANTLE!!! The "Commerce Comet" captured the hearts of millions of Americans via his colossal tape measure home runs that stemmed from his Goliath-like power. It is nearly inconceivable to think that no baseball player before and after hit a baseball further and with more consistence than "The Mick", especially lieu of our National Pastime's current steroid ridden environment. Mantle achieved his mighty power via his sheer natural existence, with no weight lifting or performance enhancing drugs assisting him in any way, shape or form.
It is with no coincidence that the pricing points for his early 1950's baseball card issues have spiraled upwards like an uncontrollable brush fire, triggered by the incomparable rise of his "Holy Grail" 1952 Topps high-numbered subject. Furthermore, enthusiasts are well aware that a PSA 8 "2nd-year" Mantle Bowman issue is one to own. Collectors surely realize the excruciating task to locate '52 Bowman Mantles in any grade since most of these issues exhibit skewed images. Add this one to your Mantle collection.
