    Description

    1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle #253 PSA VG-EX 4 (MK). The early 1950's Bowman sets are admired and pursued for the fabulous portraiture that characterizes this classic era. From this era are some of the greatest talents the National Pastime has ever seen. The heir-apparent to Joe DiMaggio made his trading card debut in the 1951 Bowman series on card #253. Today, there is no debate regarding the supreme relevance this iconic star has achieved as one of the most desired and essential cards of the post-war era. The card's appearance in the short-printed high-number series only adds to its scarcity and mystique. Offered is a card that has been graded PSA VG-EX 4 (MK). The "MK" is the result of the "8" written in pencil on his shoulder. That aside, this is a very colorful mid-grade example.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
