    Description

    1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle #253 PSA EX-MT 6. After struggling in his rookie season enough to be sent back down to the minors, the young Oklahoman was ready to call it quits. Hard to believe but the Mick's first card was almost his last. History tells us fortunes changed for the talented outfielder Today, card #253 from the '51 Bowman edition is among the most desirable cards in post-war collecting, rather than being just a run-of-the-mill high number common. Graded PSA EX-MT 6, this example shows nicer than anticipated inks, surface, and corner quality for an EX-MT card with sharp registration. Centering seems to be the to account for the PSA grade.
