    Description

    1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle #253 PSA EX 5. Bowman's run of annual baseball card promotions might have been brief but each, in their own way, had an impact on the hobby. The '48 set opened the gates to the modern era of the hobby. The '53 series brought color photography to fans, their '55 series is now the classic "TV"series for obvious reasons. Their 1951 set is famous for their quality illustrations and a couple rookie cards of players who would become legends. Offered is the rookie card debut of Mickey Mantle. The color quality here has remained high, scratching from printing press rollers that seems so common with this card is not to be found. This is a solid mid-grade example of the rookie card of a baseball legend. Graded PSA EX 5.
