Description1952 Topps Mickey Mantle #311 PSA EX 5. When it comes to baseball cards issued before the Second World War, the Honus Wagner T206 is the undisputed king. But of the modern era, card #311 from the 1952 Topps series featuring baseball legend Mickey Mantle claims the prize as the most coveted and valuable entry. It has become a card that is on every collector's wish list. There is just some mesmerizing appeal of the talented young hopeful looking skyward toward destiny.
Graded PSA EX 5. Any "faults" have dramatically failed to have much impact. This is a colorful and glossy example with a bold, impressive and inviting portrait that offers both physical and visual appeal. There is wear at the corners which seems to be the main aspect that keeps this card from a higher grade. Centering rests to the right horizontally with precise vertical centering. A great card.
Guide Value or Estimate: $80,000 - up.
Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
