    The top of the Topps

    1952 Topps Mickey Mantle #311 PSA NM 7. It's the hottest card in the hobby right now, soaring to new heights with every auction cycle, and there's every reason to believe that the trend will continue for some time. Many trading card experts have gone so far as to suggest that the 1952 Topps Mantle has supplanted the T206 Wagner as the hobby's most celebrated representative, and while relative populations indicate that the Mick will never quite match pricing for the Old Dutchman, there is some logic to the contention.

    So when one takes a larger view of history, the rising tide of the debut card of Topps' first high-number series seems almost preordained. Certainly the examples residing on the upper rungs of the population ladder are seeing the most significant pricing growth, and the presented example clearly deserves its lofty rating.

    The bright blue sky and the upward gaze of the subject it frames seems to herald an exciting new Major League age, both for the sport and the trading card hobby. Image registration is fantastic, and centering is likewise quite strong. Minor toning of the white borders appears to be the primary limiting factor in a card that otherwise might have soared to even greater heights within the PSA population. A splendid representation for the discerning collector.
