    Description

    Signed 1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle #253, PSA/DNA Authentic Auto 8. "Mickey is the Yankee rookie of whom so much is expected in 1951," begins the text on the verso of the Yankee legend's '51 Bowman card. How's that for understatement? Though the Mick offered only a glimpse of his future greatness that turbulent first year, his subsequent seventeen left no doubt that the money spent on sending scouts out to Joplin in 1950 was a sound investment. And the same could certainly be said of money spent to acquire this exceedingly rare autographed example of Mantle's true rookie.

    It is worth noting that our last three offerings of a signed 1951 Bowman Mantle brought the following hammer prices: $45,600 for an SGC Authentic in 2017, $66,000 for a PSA/DNA Mint 9 (autograph only) in 2018, and $23,400 for a PSA Authentic Auto 9 in 2019.

    This is a particularly strong example of that rare and coveted breed. Its blue sharpie signature earns every point of its glowing PSA/DNA assessment, and a well-centered card leaves plenty of room for the value of this beauty to grow in future years. Full Grading LOA from PSA/DNA, Auto 8.
