(LOT 41)
1954 Bowman #65 Mickey Mantle SGC 8 NM-MT

BOWMAN MANTLE GEM!!! The 1954 campaign would see the Commerce Comet eclipse the 100 RBI mark for the first time, knocking in 102 runs and crushing 27 homers while leading the AL with 129 runs scored. The newest Yankees center fielder was on his way to stardom, allowing fans to breathe a sigh of relief after having surrendered their beloved Yankee Clipper only three years prior. With two All-Star nods, and another in '54, Mantle solidified his place in center and in the hearts of Yankee fans everywhere. The offered 1954 Bowman #65 Mickey Mantle holdered 8 NM-MT by SGC shows the happy 22-year-old ready to take on New York and the AL. The classic half-body image displays wonderfully rich pastel hues and sparkling clarity, with Mantle's portrait image presenting fine centering that reflects a minimal partiality only towards the right edge. Sharp corner tips, a gleaming reverse, clean surfaces are all pack-fresh attributes combining to support the highly coveted assessment!
