(LOT 59)
1956 Topps #135 Mickey Mantle Gray Back PSA 8 NM-MT

COMET'S TRIPLE CROWN YEAR!!! One of Mickey Mantle's most sought-after cards is his 1956 Topps #135 subject, since it was during this magical season that The Mick captured both the Triple Crown, his fourth championship and, of course, the AL MVP award. Mantle paced the American League with 52 round-trippers, 130 RBIs and a stellar career-high .353 batting average to earn the elusive Triple Crown! It isn't often that players live up to the hype that surrounds them as they rise through the ranks, but Mickey Mantle was an exception.

His power, speed, discipline from both sides of the plate and fielding abilities made him one of the greatest players in the league and the most beloved NY Yankee. Presented here is a remarkably well-preserved 1956 Topps #135 Mickey Mantle housed in an 8 NM-MT holder from PSA, appearing as if it has just been pulled from a 1956 Topps wax pack. This masterpiece from 1956 includes a classic portrait image with awe-inspiring resolution as well as the imposing pose of Mickey's acrobatic catch over the center field fence. This classic image reveals near-perfect centering, with the pinpoint corners and superbly clean surfaces being the final exclamation points justifying its pack-fresh assessment!
