(LOT 445)
1957 Topps #95 Mickey Mantle PSA 8 NM-MT

MANTLE!!! Any card of the great HOF Yankee centerfielder, Mickey Mantle, is considered a bona fide collectible in the baseball card circuit with his incredibly hot 1952 Topps Rookie card paving the way for The Mick's other 1950s cardboard gems. Mantle's HOF credential are countless including 536 home runs, three MVPs, 12 Pennants, seven World series victories, a record for World Series Home Runs (18) as well as a Triple Crown season in 1956. Following that "Cinderella" season in which the Yankees also reclaimed a world championship, Topps issued one of "The Mick's" most popular cards in 1957, with one of this issue's super eye appeal specimens presented here in a scintillating PSA 8 NM-MT holder. The card itself is magnificent in all aspects of condition sensitivity. Let's start with the super-defined contrast of the classic Mantle batting image as he potentially clouts another one of his long balls donning the classic Yankee pinstripes. Snow-white borders lead to a razor-sharp perimeter, bolstered by four pinpoint corners. No glaring surface blemishes are evident, the sheer gloss is completely intact, and the verso retains its original print attributes. A pack-fresh card to say the least, it merits serious attention from even the most meticulous enthusiast!
