    Description

    1952 Topps Mickey Mantle #311 PSA VG 3 (MC). Mickey Mantle's card #311 launched the "high-number series" of the 1952 Topps issue, a portion of the set that fell victim to unrealistic deadlines and thus failed to meet its expected distribution quotas. Only small quantities made it to counter displays at the local five and dime, the balance ultimately towed several miles off the New Jersey shore and dumped to clear space on the warehouse floor for newer models.

    Here's a rare survivor, a card widely considered the most significant of the post-war era. We find it in condition quite typical of septuagenarian cardboard commemoratives, a bit rough around the edges but otherwise a pleasing example. Now that Mint 9 specimens have soared high into seven-figure status, and the scant few Gem Mint 10 cards virtually assured an eight-figure price tag should one trade hands, these more modestly graded examples are having their own moment on the hobby's big stage. Graded PSA VG 3 (MC).
