    1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle #253 SGC 84 NM 7. The Mick's image jumps right out at you and you're hard pressed to find a single print dot on the card. This strong example has four very nice corners, spectacular colors featuring the deepest, boldest blue imaginable on his hat, perfect focus and picture registration with bright, vibrant background coloring. The reverse is virtually flawless with the slightest wax stain to the left of Weight: 175. Here's your rare opportunity to acquire the rookie card of one of baseball's true immortals, Mickey Mantle. Truly important cards like this one never go out of style. Only 15 cards have been graded higher by SGC, which will make this a very highly sought after card.
