    1953 Stahl-Meyer Franks Mickey Mantle # SGC 30 Good 2 - Only One Higher. The Stahl-Meyer Franks cards are a dream come true for New York fans. The large sized cards showcase players exclusive to the three New York teams. For collectors their limit distribution and currently available population are more nightmare than dream come true. Circulation method all but guaranteed cards survived toward the lower end of the condition scale but for such great looking cards no one seems to care. Mickey Mantle was in just his third Big League season in '53 and was probably considered then as he is now - the key in the nine-card set. Graded SGC 30 Good 2. From a paltry total population of only nineteen submission, this is one of four in Good with one rated higher - a Good+. The fact that a Good+ card is the highest recorded example for SGC should give one a clear indication of just how tough these hot dog cards are to find even in mid-grade condition.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $4,000 - up.
