Description

Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA, the offered 1951 Bowman #253 high number is the “true” rookie card of Mickey Mantle. Despite a moderately touched perimeter and a negligible trace of wax staining on the reverse, the coveted horizontal canvas is otherwise unobstructed. Undoubtedly one of the most famed post-war gum issues, this debut Mantle card is an instantly recognizable classic depicting a determined “Mick” at the outset of his Hall of Fame career. Presents at the peak of the assigned tier. It should be noted that a slight wrinkle is barely evident on the top edge above Mantle's name on the front only.
