    1956 Topps Mickey Mantle #135 SGC 96 Mint 9. When one talks about the all-time greats, Mickey Mantle is right on the tip of your tongue. Mickey Mantle played 18 seasons with the New York Yankees; none more memorable, with the possible exception of 1961 and the home run chase with Roger Maris, than his 1956 Triple Crown year. This card depicts "The Mick" flashing that big Oklahoma smile, almost as if he knew he would win the triple crown that year and be voted the American League MVP. This card was released during that fabled 1956 season and has survived the test of time. Still, a full half century later, the virtually flawless and bright white frame, aided by centering that is a hairline away from the perfection surround a portrait of Mantle that presents utterly brilliant colors and sharp detail. That means print registration is nothing short of precise. Collectively, what little wear there is, seen under magnification, at the four outer corner tips is almost entirely concentrated at one tip. The gray card stock has none of the minute flaws one tends to see leaving the reverse as virtually problem-free as the front. The end result in all of this is a special opportunity to add one of the finest examples of Mick's most popular cards to your collection. Graded SGC 96 Mint 9. SGC has reviewed over 1,000 Mantle cards from this historic season, only nine have earned a "Mint" label.
