    Description

    1952 Topps Mickey Mantle #311 PSA VG-EX+ 4.5. Any serious hobbyist with a thrill for vintage cardboard will immediately recognize the given example as one of the true gems of the industry. Behold the #311 Mickey Mantle rookie card from Topps' celebrated 1952 issue -- which remains the single most sought-after Mantle card that there is. An absolute symbol of the collecting industry, one would do well to obtain a Mantle rookie with the eye appeal of the sparkling exemplar that we set before you today. This fine example has been graded PSA VG-EX+ 4.5.

    While technical assessment is important, many take the approach "But the card, not the holder." he who follows that path will be richly rewarded. The visual appeal of this card is a "9" out of 10. After careful review we have been unable to find any creases or wrinkles. The combination of the central portrait and surrounding frame is almost mesmerizing. The glowing-white border and deep, vivid hues in conjunction with perfect registration make for an impressive display that we can't imagine anyone being left disappointed by. A great looking card with tremendous visual quality.

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