    Description

    NOTE: The image in the catalog in not the correct card.

    1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle #253 PSA EX 5. NOTE: Due to a key stroke error in assigning file name, the wrong card and description appears in the printed catalog. The correct card is posted online with a PSA cert. #24680865.

    The early 1950's Bowman sets are admired and pursued for the fabulous portraiture that characterizes this era. Offered is a solid mid-grade example of the rookie card of Mickey Mantle. 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 ink quality is crisp and vibrant. Reverse wax staining that is so common with this issue is non-existent. His portrait which rests toward the right and high of center is brought to life via a bright white frame, strong hues and precision print registration. Graded PSA EX 5. An attractive example.

    Just wanted to let you know how pleased I am regarding the sale of my hockey jersey. You were great to work with, you answered all my phone calls and e-mails in a prompt manner, and you did a great job marketing the jersey.
