    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 future HoFers. We certainly welcome every opportunity to offer this card to our clients in any condition but this card has that special something, that "X" factor.

    Graded PSA NM 7. We salute the Bowman staff of artist who truly raised the quality bar for illustrative excellence. Mantle's portrait is now an icon in the hobby. Hard to imagine the future Yankees all-tie 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. We are happy to say those elements fail to carry much relevance here. Wax stains on the reverse are non-existent as are roller lines. Ink and gloss quality have remained very high.

    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.
