    1959 Topps Mickey Mantle Hits 42nd HR #461 PSA Gem MT 10 - A Pop One-of-One Condition Rarity! The historical home run race of 1961 was not the first 4-Bagger 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. Our November 2013 auction offered a Mint 9 example advertised as "None Higher." One lucky collector must have taken that as a challenge as we now have the first (after over 2,200 submissions) card to achieve that ever-elusive PSA Gem Mint 10 rating. As one should expect, this card has it all! A "pack-fresh" stunner in every way, razor sharp corner tips goes to four, centering very close to perfect, plus rich, bold hues and unblemished gloss. How many more thousands of submissions it will take for another Gem MT copy will be found, if ever.
