    Description

    1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle #253 PSA NM 7. Argue all you'd like that the 1952 Topps card is Mickey's true rookie - our calendar tells us that the '51 Bowman was actually the first. Centering problems abound in this issue, with gum and wax stains appearing at epidemic levels. Our offering is spared the brunt of such ailments. Centering does rest a thin line away from perfection but this card takes it a step further by sporting four quality corners and crisp rich hues. Any "flaws" are so minor as to risk overstatement with a mere mention. Graded PSA NM 7. The most significant rookie card of the 1950's era.

    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.
