    Description

    1952 Topps Mickey Mantle #311 PSA VG-EX 4. Sometimes the collecting stars align, as was clearly the case when the Topps company's first great set was issued with the rookie card of the post-war era's most beloved star. The 1952 Topps set is considered one of the hobby's "Big Three" along with the T206 and 1933 Goudey issues, and the Mick's rookie is far and away Topps' most coveted and valuable card. The young Oklahoman leads off the fabled "high-number" series that saw most of its population drowned in the Atlantic after failing to reach retail outlets before the close of the 1952 season.

    With top examples now flipping the seventh digit on the pricing odometer, attractive mid-grade examples are becoming even more attractive to the investment-minded collector, and this is a particularly captivating example, featuring deeply-hued color that matches the million-dollar babies. Typical edge and corner wear determine the rating as listed.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
