(LOT 171)
1954 Bowman #65 Signed Mickey Mantle - PSA 3 VG Card Grade; PSA 10 GEM MINT Autograph

GEM MINT MANTLE AUTO!!! When a somewhat off-centered PSA 3, Auto 10 signed Mickey Mantle Bowman sold for over $16K in August 2023, it begged the question: What would a virtually spot-on centered example sporting a much bolder PSA 10 autograph realize in this smoking hot signed card market? Fortunately for collectors, you now have the golden opportunity to not only resolve that inquiry but more significantly, with a simple final bid, capture what truly stands as one of the finest eye-pleasing scripted 1954 Bowman Mick. Substantiating that notion is the Oklahoma Kid's classic half-bust image, revealing nearly dead-on positioning between four relatively clean borders while also showcasing the boldest imaginable Mickey Mantle black Sharpie signature in the center of the card! The mere 41 total signed '54 Bowman Mantle's on the PSA Pop Chart represent a fractional 0.7% of the whopping 5,000+ unsigned examples. Furthermore, considering the eleven PSA 9 MINT unsigned specimens fetch an average of nearly $300K, from an eye-appeal perspective, only 5-10% of the 41 Mantle-signed Bowmans could possibly equal or surpass the striking visual appeal of this pinnacle offering!

MIN BID $4,000
