(LOT 62)
1951 Bowman #253 Mickey Mantle Rookie PSA 3 VG

COMMERCE COMET ROOKIE!!! Along with the majestic Babe Ruth inaugural issue, the 1951 Bowman Mantle rookie arguably suffices as the most coveted rookie card in the collecting community, eternally residing as one of the hobby's pinnacle "world class" cardboard artifacts. The seemingly infinite rise of Mantle's sanctified 1952 Topps subject has likewise propelled the desirability and value of his inaugural 1951 Bowman issue, with each sale producing record setting prices.
With that in mind, presented here is a PSA 3 VG example of the iconic Mickey Mantle rookie card from the 1951 Bowman series in a strong PSA VG 3 holder. What card could better represent the strength of our hobby than Mickey Mantle's inaugural cardboard issue, treasured by every boy who grew up worshiping the "Commerce Comet" dominate the game via his mammoth sized round trippers. The seemingly timeless "Bat over Shoulder" pose with Mickey's #6 partly showing on his uniform from his rookie season is a card to own. The card is 69 years old and would be a great addition to any collection. Bid to own this MANTLE ROOKIE CARD!!!
