    Description

    1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle #253 PSA NM 7. There is no need to go into the baseball legend that is Mickey Mantle. His on (and off) the field exploits have filled volumes of books and have remained the topic of conversations across kitchen and restaurant tables for generations. His is considered by many to be the most significant rookie card competing against names like Aaron, Banks, Clemente, Kaline, Koufax, Mays and so many other future HoFers. We certainly welcome every opportunity to offer this card to our clients in any condition but this card has that special something, that "X" factor.

    Graded PSA NM 7. We salute the Bowman staff of artist who truly raised the quality bar for illustrative excellence. Mantle's portrait is now an icon in the hobby. Hard to imagine the future Yankees all-time great was not even twenty at the time he made his trading card debut. Fans of this series are all-too aware of the printing issues that surround this production. This is a card no Mantle collection should be without.


    Guide Value or Estimate: $30,000 - up.

    Auction Type
    Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
