    Description

    1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle #253 SGC 60 EX 5. Debate all you wish to that the 1952 Topps card is Mickey Mantle's rookie but you'll always be wrong. While claims that Mantle's '52 Topps card is a prettier card, as we're of the opinion that Bowman's designs of the early 1950's represent one of the high water marks in cardboard aesthetics. This is a very appealing example of a key rookie appearance. This breath-taking card features light wear to the tip of the corners, gorgeous colors and admirable centering. Graded SGC 60 EX 5. A nice solid mid-grade example of a hobby classic. The SMR value is $5,950.
