(LOT 58)
1962 Topps #18 Mantle/Mays Manager's Dream PSA 9 MINT

Appropriately dubbed a "Manager's Dream", presented here just happens to be one of the most formidable examples of this highly coveted keepsake, an extraordinary PSA Mint 9 gem that has been joined by a mere nine other examples and incredibly bested by only a SOLE PSA Gem Mint 10 specimen! The image certainly was taken from a previous All-Star game since you can see other stars in the distant background including the legendary Hank Aaron. Mantle is donning his classic Yankee pinstripes while Mays chose to wear his San Francisco road flannels.

Both Hall of Famers are emanating good-natured smiles, with their leather gloves affixed to their left hands. Magnificent contrast and clarity, sparking hues, near-perfect centering, pinpoint corners and miraculously clean wood-grain borders are the special highlights of this time-defying marvel. It is no secret that the most meticulous collectors painstakingly pursue 1962 Topps subjects with the near-impossible to find clean wood-grain borders, with the '62 Topps issue one of the most condition sensitive post-WWII sets. This extraordinary heirloom depicting New York's two greatest all-time centerfielders is now yours for the taking, keeping in mind that it is the SOLE vintage card portraying only Mantle & Mays!
