    Signed 1953 Bowman Color Mickey Mantle #59 PSA/DNA Gem Mint 10! So much has been said about Bowman turning to color photography for their 1953 Baseball series. It was a significant event and in reality was a desperate answer to the extraordinary job Topps did with their 1952 baseball promotion. That set was a striking blow to Bowman that they never truly recovered from. But card #59 featured a young Yankees outfielder named Mickey Mantle. That card is now one of his most sought after. Offered is a loved example that displays the real prize, a perfect blue sharpie signature of Mantle that has been graded PSA/DNA Gem Mint 10! This is currently the only example to grade "Gem Mint" by PSA/DNA of only twenty-five total submissions.

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