    Description

    1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle #253 PSA EX 5. The early 1950's Bowman sets are admired and pursued for the fabulous portraiture that characterizes this classic era. The card's appearance in the short-printed high-number series only adds to its scarcity and mystique. A card of supreme relevance, this iconic star's debut creates one of the most desired and essential cards of the post-war era. This solid mid-grade example of a rookie card of Mickey Mantle has been graded PSA EX 5 for some mild corner wear and slight edge roughness. The ink quality has remained high and the card has completely missed the scratching from printing press rollers and reverse ink stains that seem to be so common with this card.
