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 credentials are countless including 536 home runs, three MVPs, seven World Series titles, a record for World Series Home Runs (18) and the 1956 Triple Crown. Following that "Cinderella" season in which the Yankees also claimed the 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. This card is magnificent in all aspects of condition sensitivity. Let's start with the super defined contrast of the classic Mantle batting image as he possibly clouts one of his majestic long balls wearing the classic Yankee pinstripes. Snow-white borders lead to a razor-sharp perimeter, bolstered by four sharp 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!
