    Description

    1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle #253 SGC 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. His rookie card is now among the most valued and coveted cards in the hobby and the key to this popular set. Graded SGC VG/EX 4. Reverse wax stains are at a bare minimum with no print roller lines. Portrait is very bright, bold and virtually without blemish.
