Description

    1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle #253 PSA EX 5. The early 1950's Bowman sets are admired and pursued for the fabulous portraiture that characterizes this classic era. This solid mid-grade example of the rookie card of Mickey Mantle has been graded PSA EX 5. A card of supreme relevance, this iconic star's debut creates one of the most desired and essential cards of the post-war era. The card's appearance in the short-printed high-number series only adds to its scarcity and mystique. The ink quality has remained high. Reverse wax staining and scratching from a printing press roller which are so common with this card are at a minimum. His portrait is nicely centered and is brought to life via a bright white frame and hues which would be tough to improve upon. Physical condition is accurately assessed by PSA rating but visual appeal is very strong. A very attractive example.
