    Description

    1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle #253 PSA NM 7. There is no need to go into the baseball legend that is Mickey Mantle. His on (and off) the field exploits have filled volumes of books and have remained the topic of conversations across kitchen and restaurant tables for generations. His is considered by many to be the most significant rookie card competing against names like Aaron, Banks, Clemente, Kaline, Koufax, Mays and so many other all-time greats. We certainly welcome every opportunity to offer this card to our clients, in any condition.

    Graded PSA NM 7. Mantle's rookie portrait is now an icon in the hobby. Hard to imagine the future Yankees all-time great was not even twenty at the time he made his trading card debut. Fans of this series are all-too aware of the printing issues that surround this production. Poor centering, loose registration, wax stains and then there are those unsightly printing press roller lines that are so common. Print registration is precise and the scene is delicately placed precisely inside four bright white borders that and high quality corners. This is a card no Mantle collection should be without.
