(LOT 498)
1962 Topps #200 Mickey Mantle PSA 8.5 NM-MT+

WOODEN MANTLE!!! With all due respect to Mickey Mantle's Triple Crown winning 1956 campaign, in 1961, he was having arguably his best season yet as he challenged teammate Roger Maris in a home run derby of sorts to top Babe Ruth's illustrious single season home run record of 60. But that battle went to Maris, the other half of the M&M Boys, as Mickey fell off the pace, finishing with 54 HRs, and Roger clouted his 61st on the final day of the season. However, with 54 HRs, 128 RBIs and a .317 batting average, this easily could have been his fourth American League MVP season. Offered is a 1962 Topps #200 Mickey Mantle PSA 8.5 NM-MT+ highlighting that outrageous year. With vibrant colors and virtually flawless wood-grained borders, this high-grade Mick is one destined for the best of collections. Only one equal and 17 examples, including one PSA 10, have graded higher than this Mantle gem. Don't miss out on this highly coveted Mantle from '62. This is Hall of Fame worthy!
