(LOT 493)
1953 Topps #82 Mickey Mantle PSA 6.5 EX-NM+

MONSTER MANTLE!!! Every collector knows the significance of the renowned 1952 Mantle Topps rookie. Its place in the card industry as the most important post WW1 cards is solidified. To own a '52 Mantle is another issue, due to its high demand and price. For Topps collectors, there is however, an alternative path: this 1953 Topps issue. Simply finding a high grade 2nd year Mantle Topps card is almost impossible.

The "Mick" is the winner of 12 pennants and 7 World Championships and he was the classic American hero, idolized by millions of fans largely in part as a result of his supernatural power that produced tape measure home runs. The card presented here, likewise, portrays all of the HOF qualities one would expect from a powerful champion. The ultra-popular, resounding portrait lithograph of Mantle wearing his Yankee cap is vividly registered, set against a pleasant stadium backdrop. Bid strong and take this beauty home!!!

MIN BID $3,500
