    Description

    1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle #253 PSA EX 5. The kid from Commerce was still wearing his hated number "6" jersey when he posed for the image that would be used upon his earliest rookie card. Though his early struggles almost convinced Mickey to hang up his bat at age twenty, his perseverance led to Hall of Fame immortality and turned this card from a mere "common" into the most valuable card in the popular set. Typical edge and corner wear cannot diminish the spectacular visual appeal created by superb centering, color and registration, making this the most attractive EX 5 card on the block. The wax and gum stains so typical of this set are likewise absent here. A rock-solid representation.
