(LOT 13)
1966 Topps #50 Mickey Mantle PSA 9 MINT - Only One PSA Example Graded Higher!

MINT MICK!!! This absolutely breathtaking 1966 Topps #50 PSA 9 Mint Mantle has been bested by only a single PSA encapsulated copy! Furthermore, of the approximate 11,600 PSA graded specimens, a fractional 0.6% have managed to achieve the treasured Mint 9 assessment, placing this esteemed Mantle offering as one of his finest subjects on the planet. Safe to say, this sparkling pack-fresh gem offers nearly every possible attribute worthy of the near-impossible 10 assessment including a brilliant well contrasted Commerce Comet batting image, scintillating corner tips, blizzard white borders and virtually immaculate surfaces. Of utmost significance is the extremely well-centered image, with most 1966 subjects revealing skewed images.

Stepping aside from the card's appearance for a moment, it is no secret that The Mick continues to dominate the post-WWII 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. You can feel his Goliath strength with the iconic batting pose as he awaits the pitch from another hopelessly overmatched hurler. Synonymous with Mantle's mammoth dingers that surpassed the confines of virtually every ballpark, this Mint offering would be a colossal addition to any sophisticated gathering!
