(LOT 173)
1958 Topps #150 Signed Mickey Mantle - PSA 4 VG-EX Card Grade; PSA 10 GEM MINT Autograph

PSA 10 MANTLE AUTO!!! The last two sales for a PSA 9 MINT 1958 Topps #150 unsigned Mickey Mantle realized $87K and $92K, both in 2022 Memory Lane auctions. Incredibly, those lofty price tags are affiliated with an issue revealing 28 PSA 9 examples on the PSA Pop Chart. This outstanding PSA 4 signed offering proudly boasts the hallowed PSA 10 signature, and while there are twice as many signed '58 Topps Mantle's versus its PSA 9 unsigned brethren, the $15K+ sale of another PSA 4/10 signed subject in August 2023 represents only 17% of the value for its unsigned PSA 9 peer. This clearly indicates the substantial investment potential and prosperity of this amazing offering that just happens to exhibit an extremely rare well-centered Mantle portrait pose, as well as a majestic blue Sharpie signature rightfully earning the perfect 10 assessment. Bested by a paltry seven PSA examples with regard to its technical assessment, an extensive sampling of many other signed specimens clearly indicates their substandard aesthetics, from both a centering and autograph strength/placement perspective. Captivating to say the least, this near-impossible keepsake would make a centerpiece attraction in any world-class Mantle gathering!
