    1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle #253 Rookie Card SGC Authentic. A pinnacle of any Memorabilia collection, the universally admired and sought after Mickey Mantle rookie card. A comic book couldn't have scripted a better story, the Oklahoman rube, straining his neck in wonderment at the skyscrapers of New York, only to take the city by storm. While the card has heavy wear, and was most likely pinned to a young boy's wall with wall tacks at one time, the undeniable demand will make this a treasured collectible.
