    Description

    1952 Topps Mickey Mantle #311 PSA EX-MT 6. If we had a dime for every "Baby Boomer" we've met who's claimed to have owned a Topps Mantle rookie as a child, we'd be able to afford this one with plenty of money to spare! The most important, valuable and recognizable gum card of the post-war era has ingrained itself in our American iconography in such a way that most of us could sketch the card from memory, the Mick posed in a right-handed batting stance, his eyes drifting up to the grandstand behind him. But in spite of all those who owned one, or only dreamed that they did, the examples that have survived are, in fact, prized mementos regardless of condition.

    Graded PSA EX-MT 6. Fortuitously spared from death by drowning, this solid specimen finds itself firmly lodged near the top rung of the population ladder, with less than 10% of the almost 1,600 examples graded by PSA to date rising higher. From an era notorious for imperfect centering, the presented representation magnificently bucks that trend. Wear, if any, at corners and edges is remarkably light. Colors have a deep richness brought out by the clean and bright white frame. The ideal EX-MT card.
