(LOT 65)
1966 Topps #50 Mickey Mantle PSA 9 MINT - Only ONE Example Graded Higher!

This absolutely spectacular 1966 Topps #50 PSA Mint 9 Mantle has been bested by only a single PSA encapsulated copy! Furthermore, of the approximate 10,300 PSA-graded specimens, a fractional 0.7% have managed to achieve the treasured "Mint 9" assessment, placing this esteemed Mantle offering as one of the finest subjects on the planet. Safe to say, this sparkling "pack-fresh" gem offers nearly every possible attribute worthy of the near-impossible "10" assessment including a brilliant well contrasted "Commerce Comet" batting image, near-perfect centering, scintillating corner tips, blizzard white borders and virtually immaculate surfaces. Stepping aside from the card's appearance for a moment, it is no secret that "The Mick" continues to dominate the post-WWII card market with his high-grade examples actively sought-after by a myriad of elite enthusiasts.

Due to the legendary stature of his 1952 Topps Rookie card, his remaining cardboard issues continue to soar in popularity, with record breaking prices for high-grade examples being realized with virtually every passing sale. The embodiment of courage, Mantle's awe-inspiring power and blazing speed are qualities ultra-consistent with this pristine marvel. You can literally feel his Goliath-like strength via the iconic batting pose as he awaits the pitch from another hopelessly overmatched hurler. Synonymous with Mantle's mammoth dingers, this lofty offering would be a colossal addition to any sophisticated gathering via its seldom surfacing "Mint" grade!
