    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.

    Here we present a very nice example of this historic card which has been graded SGC 45 VG+ 3.5. Mantle's portrait has some very mild surface wear. Corners can best be described as having a gentle rounding. The outer border is very clean and a glowing bright white that very nicely compliments the saturated colors of the central portrait. An attractive example with a solid investment outlook if the trends to date are any indication.
