    1953-55 Dormand Mickey Mantle (Bat on Shoulder) PSA Mint 9 - Pop One with None Higher! So much has been said about Bowman turning to color photography for their 1953 Baseball series and how it was a significant point in the hobby. What is was in reality was a desperate answer to the extraordinary job Topps did with their 1952 Baseball promotion. That set was a striking bow to Bowman that they never truly recovered from. What is often looked over but just as high quality and inspiring are the post card produced by New York based photographer Louis Dormand. His work was not just limited to baseball subjects and is commonly found on other post cards of the era. Naturally, most of the players are from the New York area teams. The card were created and used to honor fans request for photos and autographs sent to players. Side by side his works is equal to and even stands out compared to the high quality offered by the Bowman staff. Of the over 40 baseball subjects, the most in demand is of course a young Yankees outfielder named Mickey Mantle. Finding unused and uncirculated is no easy feat for modern hobbyists. Offered is the standard post card size version of pose #111 "Bat on Shoulder." This close to pristine copy has been graded PSA Mint 9! This is currently the first and only example to grade "Mint 9" by PSA!
