    1959 Topps "Mantle Hits 42nd Homer For Crown" #461 PSA Gem Mint 10 - Pop Three! The historical home run race of 1961 was not the first chase of Mickey Mantle's career. In 1958, it was not a fellow Yankee that challenged "The Mick" for the home run crown but a youngster in a Cleveland Indians uniform named Colavito. Rocky was only in the third full season of his All-Star career and in 1958 went all out and put 41 baseballs over the outfield fences. Mantle would belt #42 to win the '58 crown, the third HR crown of his career. Topps honored the occasion on card #461 as part of the "Baseball Thrills" sub-set from their standard 1959 edition. The card is titled "Mantle Hits 42nd Homer For Crown," a marks the crowning achievement that helped the Yankees take the American League Championship and eventually the World Championship. A "pack-fresh" looking beauty.
    Graded PSA Gem Mint 10. One of only three graded GEM MINT.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $14,000 - up.

    Auction Type
    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.
