DescriptionSigned 1954 Bowman Mickey Mantle #65 PSA/DNA Authentic - Period Autograph. We love any and all Mickey Mantle signed trading cards, but not all are made equal. Most of those vintage cards found their subject decades after being printed and bear the most common style of Mantle's autograph, but the signature format found here tells us that the card was brand-new at the time of its encounter with Mantle. The blue fountain pen signature appears in his rookie-era style, today presenting with 7/10 boldness, primarily due to some challenges with contrast against the background. Card itself exhibits typical edge and corner wear, but the image area is well-registered and boldly colored. Auto certified PSA/DNA Authentic.
Guide Value or Estimate: $2,000 - up.
