    Description

    1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle #253 PSA EX 5. Debate all you wish to that the 1952 Topps card is Mickey Mantle's rookie but you'll always be wrong. While claims that Mantle's '52 Topps card is a prettier card, as we're of the opinion that Bowman's designs of the early 1950's represent one of the high water marks in cardboard aesthetics. This is a very appealing example of a key rookie appearance. The corners show modest wear, rich, deep coloring and a complete lack of roller lines or wax stains. Rated largely for centering. Graded PSA EX 5. A very nice solid mid-grade example of a hobby classic.
