    Description

    1959 Bazooka Mickey Mantle SGC NM/MT 88. Simply the finest such card ever graded by SGC, one of only two representations to achieve the vaunted status of NM/MT 88. The photographic image of Mickey in front of the backdrop of a Yankee Stadium grandstand is one of the finest photographic portraits of this baseball legend. Here it appears with perfect color and registration, capturing perfectly Mantle's boyish good looks. Edges and corners, so often a problem with this issue, are free of the slightest defect, as is the blank back of the card. It's certainly evident that there's a reason no card has ever been graded higher--how could a better card possibly exist?
