    1959 Topps Mickey Mantle #10 SGC Mint+ 9.5 - The Reigning SGC Champion! It is the dream of almost every little boy to grow up and become a professional baseball player. With hard work and determination, as well as a little luck a very small number get to fulfill that dream. The immense pressure is what separates the men from the boys as they say. That pressure must have been even greater for a young, All-American boy from Commerce, Oklahoma named Mickey Mantle who would be taking the place of Joe DiMaggio in the leftfield of Yankees Stadium. Maybe Carl Yastrzemski can understand how it feels to replace legend. Mantle overcame that pressure and the rest is baseball history. The 1950's belonged to mantle and the Yankees. His following some 50 years after his retirement is a testament to his status as baseball royalty.

    Graded SGC Mint+ 9.5. This card is the only card to grade Mint+ with the new SGC grading system. It is the finest recorded example in an SGC holder! This card is so close to perfection on each and every level. Super clean white borders, bright coloring, high quality corners and a glossy obverse. An utterly impressive entry by the generally conservative eyes of the SGC judges that will serve as the cornerstone of the collection of the most passionate Mantle enthusiast.
