    Description

    1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle #253 SGC 60 EX 5. The early 1950's Bowman sets are admired and pursued for the fabulous portraiture that characterizes this classic era. A card of supreme relevance, this iconic star's debut creates one of the most desired and essential cards of the post-war era. The card's appearance in the less prevalent high-number series only adds to its scarcity and mystique. The ink quality has remained high, scratching from printing press rollers that seems so common with this card is minimal. This solid mid-grade example of a rookie card of Mickey Mantle. Graded SGC 60 EX 5.
