    Description

    1953 Topps Mickey Mantle #82 SGC 88 NM/MT 8. Within every card promotion there is that one card that evolves from just being a part of the set to single-handedly representing the entire series. An extremely strong case can be made for card #82 from the 1953 Topps series featuring Mickey Mantle for being the stand out card, with all due respect to Mays, Paige and Jackie Robinson. Of the thousands of cards produced over the last 125-years, few offer a more distinctive and recognizable portrait, one that has come to represent this beloved New York Yankee outfielder.

    Graded SGC 88 NM/MT 8. This card defies all logic. It completely fails to look like a 62-year old piece of card stock and ink. This copy shows a virtual lack of any physical imperfections. We could go on but skip the 1,000 words and just look at the large online image. It's a gorgeous card. It would be a challenge to find a more appealing example. With the value of his 1952 Topps cards reaching astronomical heights, this early-career Mantle card is a hot seller with enormous potential.
