Description

    1955 Bowman Mickey Mantle #202 SGC 96 Mint 9 - The Finest SGC Example! What do you look for in a Mint condition card? Sharp corners, precise centering, fantastic colors, a glossy obverse and a wax stain free reverse... the options go on and on. This card has it covered. Between the frequent print defects and the dark borders of the 1955 Bowman issue, there are few examples that have survived the fifty-plus years since they were manufactured in the condition that we offer with this Mantle. The new lucky hobbyist who claims this card will just have to live with the four sharp corners and the original pack fresh gloss which stand out when examining this outstanding card. Lastly, the centering frames the Mick in the classic television design to within hairlines of perfection. Of the over 450 submissions to SGC, this is the one and only to have achieved this improbable plateau from SGC with none grading higher. This is a true condition rarity and worthy of being called a prized addition to any Mantle centric or 1950's collection.
