    Description

    1953 Topps Mickey Mantle #82 SGC 92 NM/MT+ 8.5. This is one of a handful of submission made to SGC that have graded at the NM/MT+ level. There are four that have graded higher. The full bleed color at the lower left corner is the fly in the ointment for most cards from this second great Topps Baseball issue. This remarkable specimen dodges that pitfall most admirably, providing the look of a card straight out of an Eisenhower-era wax pack. The magic isn't confined solely to that corner though, as more extensive investigation finds marvelous centering, first-rate color, gloss, registration and four corners just as sharp as a Mantle line drive. It's no surprise that the featured lot finds itself in the most elite company. This is the time to add this premier example to your collection.
