    1954 Dan-Dee Potato Chips Mickey Mantle SGC 92 NM/MT+ 8.5 - Pop Four, Three Higher. 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. High grade single cards are rarely found today, let alone made available for sale. 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. With Dan-Dee cards, the close proximity to greasy snack chips made necessary a protective layer of wax which did protect the card but is also the main reason Dan-Dee cards are graded conservatively and their visual presence often lessened. That is obviously not a problem here. Graded SGC 92 NM/MT+ 8.5 and worthy of a lengthy list of superlatives but we let the picture do our talking. Simply put, this card has it all. To date, SGC has graded seventy-seven total examples. This card is one of three to earn accompaniment by a NM/MT+ label.
