(LOT 45)
1953 Bowman Color #59 Mickey Mantle PSA 8 NM-MT

HOF YANKEE!!! One of the immortal Mickey Mantle's highly coveted cards is his 1953 Bowman keepsake, presented here in a PSA 8 NM-MT holder, with only 1% of the nearly 3,000 PSA encapsulated copies graded higher! It's no secret that Mickey Mantle rules the post-WWII card market, primarily due to the mystique of his iconic 1952 Topps card as well as his unparalleled power. Mantle was the quintessential idol for millions of young aspiring American boys due to his consistent tape measure home runs that captivated his fans. His Cooperstown-worthy batting image portrays superb contrast and clarity, along with rich hues, as the mighty switch hitter completes his Goliath-like right-handed swing. The hallowed image reveals atypically excellent centering, with additional pack-fresh highlights being a brilliant powder blue background, virtually flawless surfaces, and right-angled corners. Preventing a higher assessment are a few negligible imperfections, including faint border toning, a somewhat rough factory cut left edge, and some diminutive soiling near the verso's lower edge. Now is your golden opportunity to emulate The Mick and hit a mammoth home run of your own by capturing this time-defying PSA 8 heirloom!
