    Description

    1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle #253 PSA VG-EX 4. When Mantle posed for the photo that would be used for his rookie card one wonders if he realized what an iconic portrait it would become. Though his early struggles almost convinced Mickey to hang up his bat at age twenty, his perseverance led to Hall of Fame immortality and turned this card from a mere "common" into the most valuable card in the popular set. The all-too common printer roller lines that diminish the visual appeal are absent and only very, very light reverse wax stains are present. Vivid colors make for a strong central portrait that is close to perfectly centered. Graded PSA VG-EX 4. A solid representation.
