Description

    1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle #253 SGC 50 VG/EX 4. The kid from Commerce was still wearing his hated number "6" jersey when he posed for the image that would be used upon his rookie card. Though his early struggles almost convinced Mickey to hang up his bat at age twenty, his perseverance led to Hall of Fame immortality and turned this card from a mere "common" into the most valuable card in the popular set. Corner wear and all too common printer press rollers cannot diminish the visual appeal created by vivid colors and precision registration (a rare treat), making this a very attractive SGC 50 VG/EX 4 collectible. We should add the wax stains so typical of this set are barely visible here. A rock-solid representation.
