Description

    1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle Rookie #253 PSA NM 7. The fabulous portraiture that characterizes the early 1950's Bowman sets joins with the supreme relevance of this iconic star's debut to create one of the most desired and essential cards of the post-war era. The card's appearance in the short-printed high-number series only adds to its scarcity and mystique, with collectors battling fiercely for quality examples such as that which we present here. This issue is known for centering problems and wax stains, but our offering is spared the brunt of such ailments, with the lightest of corner touches all that prevents it from soaring even higher. Only fifty-six unqualified specimens have ever graded higher.
