Description

    1952 Topps Mickey Mantle #311 PSA NM 7. Sometimes the collecting stars align, as was clearly the case when the Topps company's first great set was issued with the rookie card of the post-war era's most beloved star. The 1952 Topps set is considered one of the hobby's "Big Three" along with the T206 and 1933 Goudey issues, and the Mick's rookie is far and away Topps' most coveted and valuable card. Here we present one of the finest examples of this important #311 known, slabbed under a NM 7 header but clearly a candidate for a possible upgrade. The common problems associated with the set are absent here, notably poor centering, print defects, gum and wax staining. With sharp corners, evenly spaced borders, magnificent color and registration and clean surfaces, this card lacks nothing that you'd find in a PSA NM-MT 8. We strongly recommend that interested parties come and view this card in person, where we expect they will come to the same conclusion.

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