    1955 Bowman Mickey Mantle #202 SGC Mint+ 9.5 - Pop One, None Higher! The 1955 Bowman Baseball set might have been their last effort but give them credit for going down swinging. Using television as a design format was genius. The medium brought Elvis to the adoring public for the first time. The first World Series broadcast in color was in 1955. The Mighty Mouse Playhouse introduced the Saturday morning cartoon. At the time, 77% of US households had a television but most were still Black & White. We can just imagine how this card set encouraged youngsters to get mom and dad up the family's TV ante. Our offered card features one of baseball's greatest talents - Mickey Mantle. His blond hair and All-American smile were ideal for television broadcasts.

    Graded SGC Mint+ 9.5. This is a "Pop One-of-One With None Higher! title holder. Historically, SGC has been known for being on the conservative side which makes a card SGC assesses not just Mint but Mint+ it comes as no surprise there is just one card at this grade level. The chances of a second is far part slim and very close to none. Color, registration, centering, gloss, surfaces, corners, all characteristics a collector dreams about can easily be defined as "like new." Ink quality is vivid and the sixty-five year old gloss shines as if it was applied yesterday.
