(LOT 54)
1959 Topps #10 Mickey Mantle PSA 8.5 NM-MT+

MANTLE!!! Coming off their 1958 World Series victory over the Milwaukee Braves, the 1959 Yankees would once again be the favorite to win the American League pennant, led by their world-class superstar Mickey Charles Mantle. The Topps Chewing Gum Company celebrated the Yankees championship by representing their future Hall of Fame player with a spectacular "good-natured" portrait image. Residing as one of Mantle's highly coveted cards, the #10 Topps subject is presented here in a breathtaking PSA NM-MT+ 8.5 holder, with only a few besting this miraculous gem!

It doesn't take a Rhodes Scholar to understand the unprecedented value uptick of high-grade Mickey Mantle baseball cards, and this ultra-desirable memento surely fits right into that unfathomable mix. The classic portrait pose emanates pristine facial hues, with the Mantle image well projected via the seemingly flawless bold red background. The near-perfect 50/50 centering is virtually never evident on a 1959 Topps Mantle subject, with most specimens exhibiting skewed images. Razor-sharp corner tips, no apparent surface flaws and immaculate resolution complete this "timeless" offering that proudly stands tall as one of the finest of its kind!
