    Description

    1952 Topps Mickey Mantle #311 PSA EX-MT 6. It seems impossible that it has already been over twenty years since the world lost Mickey Mantle. The perpetually boyish Oklahoman who claimed DiMaggio's center field grass for his own seemed so relatable-so one of us. For many, our connection to Mantle was a small piece of card stock and some ink. Mantle's #311 representation launched the "high-number series" of the 1952 Topps issue, a portion of the set that fell victim to deadlines and slow sales. Only small quantities made it to counter displays, the balance ultimately towed several miles off the New Jersey shore and dumped to clear space on the warehouse floor. The distance between supply and demand is nearly as vast as the Atlantic Ocean that serves as the final resting place for most of the original population of this iconic trading card.

    We present to our bidders the most iconic baseball card in the entire hobby. Graded PSA EX-MT 6. The offered example has quality corners one expects from an excellent-mint or nicer card. Colors have a gently higher degree of desaturation. Surfaces are very clean and fee of any blemish or imperfection. The classic portrait of Mantle is nicely centered, the slight diamond cut fails to diminish visual appeal.
