    Description

    1952 Topps Mickey Mantle #311 SGC 45 VG+ 3.5. 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. The young Oklahoman leads off the fabled "high-number" series that saw most of its population drowned in the Atlantic after failing to reach retail outlets before the close of the 1952 season.

    Offered is a very nice example of this historic card, graded SGC 45 VG+ 3.5. The garde is a reflection on the corners which can best be described as showing a slight bluntness to a gentle rounding. The outer borders are clean and glow a very pleasing bright white that nicely compliments the central portrait. A portrait that is close to being perfectly centered. An attractive example with a solid investment outlook if the trends to date are any indication.
