(LOT 71)
1952 Bowman #101 Mickey Mantle PSA 7 NM

'52 BOWMAN MICK!!! This superb 1952 Bowman PSA 7 NM Mickey Mantle resides as one of his most coveted cards in the hobby. This card's breathtaking aesthetics are the unbridled legacy of Mickey Charles Mantle. The Commerce Comet captured the hearts of millions of Americans via his colossal tape-measure home runs, with no baseball player before or after hitting a baseball further than The Mick. It's no coincidence that the pricing points for his early 1950s baseball card issues have suddenly taken off like an ICBM missile, triggered by the incomparable rise of The Mick's "Holy Grail" 1951 Bowman Rookie and 1952 Topps subjects that continue achieving record-setting prices.

The sparkling lithographic image emanates rich blue and facial hues, and like most examples, the classic illustration is somewhat skewed, in this case favoring the right edge. A gleaming obverse surface reveals no glaring blemishes, and the somewhat square corners are consistent with the grade. Most significant is the absence of any front-side print lines or flip-side gum stains, two major flaws typically plaguing this issue. A strong PSA 7 example, it has retained an abundance of its original factory-issued qualities over the past 71 years!
