    1958 Topps Mickey Mantle #150 PSA Mint 9 - None Higher. One of the most important icons of the post-war era is Mickey Mantle. He is ingrained in our American iconography in such a way that the memory of the Mick, posed in a right-handed batting stance at the plate is stored away in the mind set aside for wedding days and the birth of a child. With all due respect to the card from 1952 that features Mantle there are other Mantle gems that are just as popular. The same intense 1950's nostalgia is achieved here on this classic entry from 1958. The ultra-creative design and tricky composition that does generate an immediate impression was overlooked for the understated elegance and simplicity of a man and his smile. Sometimes it is all about that All-American charm that resonates from a simple smile and a glimmer of the eyes leaving you with a true all-time favorite. The truth is when it comes down to Mantle cards, picking a favorite for some is not quite as nerve wracking as picking a favorite child but maybe a favorite niece or nephew. His memories do reside next to those treasured family moments.

    Graded PSA Mint 9. From a total population of over 4,800 submissions, this is one of only twenty-seven at the Mint level with none rated higher. From any reasonable viewing distance, one is unlikely to spot any deviation from pure perfection, as color, gloss and registration are rendered with unimpeachable results. Marvelous photographic portrait of the Mick in his prime makes the '58 Topps card a favorite among collectors, this portrait made the more terrific thanks to deep, saturated hues and fresh gloss. One is immediately awestruck by the quality of the offered specimen.
