(LOT 68)
1958 Topps #150 Mickey Mantle PSA 8 NM-MT

MIGHTY MICK!!! One of The Mick's most desirable cardboard keepsakes is his 1958 Topps subject, presented here in a sensational PSA 8 NM-MT holder. PSA's Pop Chart indicates that a meager 0.5% of the 7,500+ encapsulated copies have bested this keepsake depicting excruciatingly tough-to-find near-perfect centering! The pricing points for all of The Mick's '50s and '60s high-grade subjects continue to soar, substantiated by the record-setting sales of PSA 9 MINT and PSA 8 NM-MT 1958 Topps Mantles for $92K and $15K, respectively, in the spring of 2022.

The Mick's cardboard keepsakes are considered royalty, and only a handful could possibly boast the combined scarcity and high-grade characteristics of this seldom-seen offering. The impeccable autumn orange background strongly projects Mantle's classic portrait pose, which reveals rich facial hues. No notable surface flaws are evident; the razor-sharp perimeter includes four pinpoint corners; and the classic image exhibits atypical near-perfect centering between four clean borders. Its pack-fresh surfaces are the final exclamation points, with the absolutely remarkable portrait pose and excellent centering being the major drivers for its breathtaking aesthetics!
