(LOT 170)
1953 Bowman #59 Signed Mickey Mantle - PSA 3 VG Card Grade; PSA 9 MINT Autograph

'53 BOWMAN SIGNED MICK!!! This magnificent 1953 Bowman #59 Mickey Mantle has been boldly signed by the immortal Cooperstown inductee, graded a PSA 3 VG while boasting a sensational PSA 9 MINT autograph! The stunning blue Sharpie signature has been neatly placed directly beneath Mantle's chin, and most significantly, this brilliantly hued marvel reflects ultra-elusive near-perfect centering, with only a smidge of partiality towards the upper edge. Trying to locate any well-centered '53 Bowman Mantle is like trying to find a needle in a haystack, let alone one that has been scripted by the legendary Mick.

Regarding potential pricing, one must consider that there are currently 23 PSA 9 MINT '53 Bowman UNSIGNED Mantles that fetch a staggering average price of $264K! While there are 45 SIGNED Mantle's typically selling for $10K-$25K (with a record high of $29K for a PSA Authentic) based on eye-appeal, only a handful of them (5-10%) could possibly portray the spellbinding aesthetics of this museum-worthy masterpiece, easily residing as one of the finest looking scripted examples extant. Indeed, a majority of '53 Bowman autographed specimens reveal skewed images and/or poor signature placement, as opposed to this breathtaking keepsake that proudly depicts best of the best visual appeal!
