Description1959 Topps Mickey Mantle #10 PSA Mint 9 - Only One Higher. It is the dream of almost every little boy to grow up and become a professional baseball player. With hard work and determination, as well as a little luck a very small number get to fulfill that dream. The immense pressure is what separates the men from the boys as they say. That pressure must have been even greater for a young, All-American boy from Commerce, Oklahoma named Mickey Mantle who would be taking the place of Joe DiMaggio in the leftfield of Yankees Stadium. Maybe Carl Yastrzemski can understand how it feels to replace legend. Mantle overcame that pressure and the rest is baseball history. The 1950's belonged to mantle and the Yankees. His following some 50 years after his retirement is a testament to his status as baseball royalty.
Graded PSA Mint 9. One of twenty-five graded MINT with just one graded higher. This card is so close to perfection in so many ways. Super clean white borders, bright coloring, high quality corners and a glossy obverse. An impressive entry that will ideally serve as the cornerstone of any 1959 Topps collection or the most passionate Mantle enthusiast.
Guide Value or Estimate: $80,000 - up.
Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
