(LOT 510)
1966 Topps #50 Mickey Mantle PSA 8.5 NM-MT+

MICK!!! This absolutely spectacular 1966 Topps #50 PSA NM-MT 8.5 Mantle is one to own. Safe to say, this sparking pack-fresh offering provides every possible attribute worthy of a higher 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-WWI 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 in every conceivable way, and you can almost feel Mantle's Goliath-like strength with his iconic batting pose as he awaits the pitch from another hopelessly overmatched hurler. Synonymous with Mantle's stratospheric home runs, this supreme offering would be a colossal addition to any sophisticated gathering via its seldom surfacing high-grade assessment!
