    Description

    1959 Bazooka Mickey Mantle SGC 88 NM/MT 8. 1959 Bazooka cards don't come any nicer than this. Careful cutting was obviously the goal of whoever had the foresight to make sure the entire original key line remained intact leaving no question that there is 100% of the intended card. The photographic image of Mickey in front of the backdrop of the Yankee Stadium grandstand is one of the finest photographic portraits found on any card of this baseball legend. Here it appears with perfect color and registration, capturing perfectly Mantle's boyish good looks. Edges and surfaces, so often a problem with this issue, are free of the slightest defect, as is the blank reverse side of the card. It's certainly evident that there's a reason why only three cards have ever been graded higher--and that counts the PSA and SGC census reports. How could a better card possibly exist? Graded SGC 88 NM/MT 8.
