Such is the tale of this unique 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle card. The top selling point is the fact is has survived quite nicely for the last 65 years. Four quality corners, terrific colors and problem-free surfaces all present and accounted for. The offered example has been graded PSA NM 7 (MC).

The uniqueness of this card is the presence of the top border and a portion of the card placed below Mantle one the original multi-card sheet. A fun card and a "NM" '52 mantle that won't cost someone into the six-figures range.
