    1952 Topps Mickey Mantle #311 SGC 55 VG/EX+ 4.5. When it comes to cards issued after the Second World War, the undisputed king of the second half of the 20th Century is Mickey Mantle's card from the 1952 Topps scarce high-number series. Every hobbyist had a spark that set the inspirational fire that got them to start amassing hundreds if not thousands of cards with portraits of their favorite baseball heroes. For many, seeing this card opened the door to hobby enlightenment. The 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle card is by far the most sought after card of the modern collecting era. Owning this card is on every collector's birthday, Christmas and yes, bucket list. There is just something majestic about a young legend looking skyward toward destiny.

    Graded SGC 55 VG/EX+ 4.5. As to be expected, there is some wear at the corners and slight edge roughness in segments. The grade is cemented by a very light wrinkle in the upper right corner. Admirable centering brings out the bright white border that grabs your attention and leads you to the very rich colors and pleasing gloss. No print ghosting, no creasing or soiling. Very attractive card with terrific eye appeal.
