Description1954 Dan-Dee Potato Chips Mickey Mantle PSA NM 7. The Mick's entry in the 1954 Dan-Dee Potato Chips series remains a showpiece within any 1950's regional collection regardless of the current state of preservation. Card collecting Mantle fans outside the north-east found the summer of 1954 a frustrating time. Mantle made no appearance on a nationally circulated card outside of Bowman wax packs. That is why the few regional issues from that summer, like the Dan-Dee Potato Chip issue, are so celebrated almost seven decades later. Revered for their status and elegant, understated design, these regional issues are treasured by modern hobbyists for their noticeable scarcity and high percentage of stars and Hall of Famers. Mickey Mantle is by far the most recognized name in the hobby. His all-american smile and boyish charm are captured in this timeless portrait. Graded PSA NM 7.

Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
