    1952 Topps Mickey Mantle #311 SGC EX 5. When ranking baseball cards issued during the 20th century, the Honus Wagner T206 is the undisputed king. Ask any reigning monarch and they will tell you there is always someone vying for the top spot. The only sure threat to the Honus supremacy comes from the modern era and that is card #311 from the 1952 Topps Baseball series featuring baseball legend Mickey Mantle. There is just some intangible appeal of the talented young hopeful looking skyward that draws one in, taking us back to a more innocent time.

    The offered example has been graded SGC EX 5 and no one would question that. One can point to the light corner touches as the reason this has not been graded higher. Fresh gloss and centering are positive points with this card, as is the exceptional color quality. The portrait is made of rich hues and precise registration. Borders boast a strong glowing-white quality. It is a great mid-grade copy fitting remarkable well into any high end set or on display all on its own. The Mantle card market is still surging with investment-minded collectors powering the rising tide.
