Description

    1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle #253 SGC 60 EX 5. Debate all you wish to that the 1952 Topps card is Mickey Mantle's rookie but you'll always be wrong. While claims that Mantle's '52 Topps card 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. This is a very appealing example of a key rookie appearance. The corners show light wear, there is a very small spec in the right border, a very small and unobtrusive triangle shape stain on the reverse, rich, deep coloring and almost 100% problem free surfaces only gently affected by handling leaving a very attractive, just mildly off-center central portrait. Graded SGC 60 EX 5. A nice solid mid-grade example of a hobby classic.
