1967 Topps #150 Mickey Mantle PSA 9 MINT - Only 2 PSA Examples Graded Higher!
MANTLE BLAZER!!! Not since 1963 did the Topps Chewing Gum Company choose to utilize a Mickey Mantle portrait image on his Topps subject, with his 1967 Topps #150 memento presented here in a spectacular PSA Mint 9 holder. Bested by a mere two PSA encapsulated copies, its unparalleled aesthetics place it as one of the premier '67 Topps Mantle cards on the planet, and one that will certainly find its way to an esteemed PSA Registered gathering. As enthusiasts truly realize, it is an excruciating task to find a 1967 Topps #150 Mantle subject with the near-perfect centering emanating from this Commerce Comet gem that also reveals virtually no tilt. Indeed, collectors would surely agree that most of the existing 1967 Topps Mantles (as well as ANY 1967 Topps subject) reveal skewed images with regard to centering and tilts, with this miraculous 55-year-old masterpiece atypically presenting itself in near-immaculate fashion.
The continuous soaring price tags of Mickey Mantle baseball cards continues to stampede ahead, and with no end in sight for this incredible phenomenon, hobbyists continue seeking The Mick's premier cardboard artifacts. One look at this museum worthy masterpiece easily places it in that aforementioned pinnacle category. Mickey's good-natured smile literally jumps off the card, ably assisted by a brilliant array of rich hues, and a sparkling powder blue background. The classic portrait image is situated between four bright white borders, and the pinpoint corners as well as the impeccable surfaces are the final exclamation points justifying the seldom surfacing 9 MINT assessment!
