    Description

    1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle #253 Card, Signed. The rookie card! The one that started it. One of his best cards for signing, however, not a popular one to have autographed while he was alive. Many collectors & dealers at the time believed that signing it would devalue the card. Not so now. Although the clarity is of issue here the overall VG/EX rating counts the rounded corners, back stain and slight crease across his cap. One can imagine seeing Mickey and Joe sharing the outfield in their only season together. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA for protection and unquestioned authenticity.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
