    Description

    1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle #253 SGC 55 VG/EX+ 4.5. The kid from Commerce was still wearing his hated number "6" jersey when he posed for the image that would be used upon his rookie card. 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 valued card in the popular set. Graded SGC 55 VG/EX+ 4.5. We should add the wax stains so typical of this set are at a minimum.
