(LOT 1051)
1968 Topps #280 Mickey Mantle PSA 9 MINT

MICK!!! Synonymous with the iconic Mickey Mantle's unparalleled stature in the baseball card market is this PSA 9 MINT example portraying attributes truly worthy of the hallowed assessment. Simply stated, virtually every aspect of this premier offering is consistent with a flawless card including its bright/sparkling image, sharp resolution, immaculate surfaces and pinpoint corners. A fan favorite, Mantle's quintessential batting pose portrays the star centerfielder donning his classic pinstripes Yankee uniform as he prepares to wallop another one of his majestic long balls. The 1968 season would sadly be Mantle's final campaign, with the "Commerce Comet" eventually passing Jimmie Foxx's 534 home run total. Esteemed collectors take on the excruciatingly painful chore of searching for the hobby's finest preserved cardboard artifacts, typically coming up short in their quest for "Mint" examples. With the pricing points for Mantle's finest graded cards achieving record prices seemingly each and every day, this magnificent offering will surely find its way into one of the hobby's most esteemed collections!

MIN BID $5,000
