    Description

    1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle #253 PSA EX 5. In the post World War II era, the most important rookie card is entry #253 from the Bowman baseball edition featuring a young man who would become more than a Hall of Famer, he would become a certified legend.

    Graded PSA EX 5. A nice mid-grade example of a hobby classic. There is just some very slight ink splash of green in the lower left. Hints of roller marks account for the technical assessment. This is a very appealing example dominated by an extremely sharp portrait with glorious color quality made all the more impressive by the almost 100% problem free surfaces. On a scale of "1" to "10" a "5" suggest it is average. There is nothing "average" about this card.
