Early 1950's Mickey Mantle Original Photograph Used for 1954 Bowman Card, PSA/DNA Type 1. Mickey Mantle was there to grab the torch from Joe DiMaggio in 1951. The Yankees continued their winning ways and all was right in the baseball world. Those blue eyes and country charm had every boy wanting to emulate The Mick. Everything he did on the diamond seemed graceful. Fresh off the heels of selling the original photo from Mantle's 1951 Bowman rookie card for a record-setting $71,700, we are pleased to offer the same image as Mantle's 1954 Bowman card. The original 8x10" shot features Mantle's ear-to-ear grin while sporting his road jersey. Production notes are carefully scribed on the front corners, and regular handling wear is visible. The reverse features editor's notes, "Bowman '54" written and a "William N. Jacobellis" photographer rubber stamp. Jacobellis photographed for the Bowman Gum Company to produce their baseball cards in the 1950's. LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
