    Description

    1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle #253 PSA VG+ 3.5. When Mantle posed for the photo that would be used for his rookie card one wonders if he realized what an iconic portrait it would become. Though his early struggles almost convinced Mickey to hang up his bat at age twenty, his perseverance led to Hall of Fame immortality and turned this card from a mere "common" into the most valuable card in the popular set. Graded PSA VG+ 3.5.
