Description

    1952 Topps Mickey Mantle #311 PSA EX 5. For every other baseball card where it applies, "short print" and "scarce high-number" would be the top selling points and nothing more would need to be said. When the card is the most coveted post-war card ever produced featuring one of the most All-American baseball superstars those points are mere footnotes. Just twenty years old at the time of issue, Mickey Mantle would become a baseball legend and national icon. The offered example of his second year 1952 Topps card #311 has been graded PSA EX 5. Virtually perfect centering, rich colors, and a blemish free portrait, we find just small amount of wear at corner tips to account for the accurate PSA assessment. Although proper, the technical grade does fail to do the card justice compared to the elevated visual appeal. A great looking card for the grade level.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
