1957 Topps Mickey Mantle #95 SGC 82 EX/NM+ 6.5. The mighty Mick is captured at the pinnacle of his powers in this image almost certainly captured the previous season during his glorious Triple Crown campaign of 1956. Though Mantle's Yankees would fail to repeat as World Champions in 1957, the superstar outfielder would successfully defend his status as the American League's Most Valuable Player. This solid mid-grade specimen recalls the last great year of New York City baseball before the Yanks were abandoned by their National League siblings. Graded SGC 82 EX/NM+ 6.5.
