(LOT 672)
1969 Topps #500 Mickey Mantle Last Name In Yellow PSA 9 MINT

YELLOW NAME!!! The significance of Mickey Mantle baseball cards to the post WW1 hobby collecting circuit is irrefutably equivocal to the stature of Wagner, Ruth, Jackson and Cobb artifacts to the pre-WW1 vintage market, with any cardboard gem of the great Yankee centerfielder typically held in the highest esteem. Such is the case for this "scarce for the grade" PSA Mint 9 "Yellow Letters" offering that has only been bested by a pair in the Gem Mint 10 holders! The "Mick's classic left-handed batting pose is virtually pristine, portraying superb contrast and crystal clear clarity. Pinpoint corners, razor sharp edging, flawless obverse/reverse side surfaces and vivid typography are the final intricacies that have earned this card its rightful assessment. No baseball player is hotter right now in the card market than Mickey Mantle, with his high-grade subjects achieving a staggering number of world-record prices. This should more than encourage the sophisticated collector to seize this seldom surfacing "pack-fresh" gem before its pricing points continue soaring to an unattainable level!

MIN BID $7,500
