    1952 Topps Mickey Mantle #311 SGC 60 EX 5. When ranking baseball cards issued during the 20th century, the Honus Wagner T206 is the undisputed king. Ask any reigning monarch and they will tell you there is always someone vying for the top spot. The only sure threat to the Honus supremacy comes from the modern era and that is card #311 from the 1952 Topps Baseball series featuring baseball legend Mickey Mantle. There is just some intangible appeal of the talented young hopeful looking skyward that draws one in, taking us back to a more innocent time.

    The offered example has been graded SGC 60 EX 5 and no one would question that. Obviously there has to be noted "faults," for lack of a better term, as it is not graded Mint, but they are the usual suspects--modest wear at corners, mild surface wear and off-center graphics. The portrait is made of rich hues and precise registration, the borders a strong glowing-white quality. It is a great mid-grade copy fitting remarkable well into any high end set or on display all on its own. The Mantle card market is still surging with investment-minded collectors powering the rising tide.
