Description

    1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle #253 SGC 60 EX 5. 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. We'll also take issue with anybody who claims the Topps rookie is a prettier card, as we're of the opinion that Bowman's designs of the early 1950's represent one of the high water marks in cardboard aesthetics. Centering prevents this example from achieving a higher grade, but all the other elements needed are present here -- strong corners, brilliant coloring and a blemish free card front and back.
