Description

    1952 Topps Mickey Mantle #311 SGC 50 VG/EX 4. Usually, the terms "1952 Topps Baseball" and "scarce high-number" are top selling points with little extra hype being necessary. But when the card is the most coveted post-war baseball card ever produced and it features one of the most All-American baseball superstars of all-time those selling points become mere footnotes. Just twenty years old at the time of issue, Mickey Mantle would become a baseball legend and national icon. Offered is his 1952 Topps entry, graded SGC 50 VG-EX 4. The technical grade fails to do this card justice. "Excellent" may describe the physical condition based on the current grading standards but to factor in visual appeal, this is a superior card for this grade level.

    The iconic portrait comes to life thanks to the deeply saturated hues and shiny gloss. Just to the left of his portrait at his eye level, there is one small surface impression and is otherwise blemish free. You will find only modest wear at the corners and we find nothing of note about the reverse. The deal closer is the virtually perfect centering which in this market is such a pivotal part of the decision making process.
