    Description

    1952 Topps Mickey Mantle #311 SGC 60 EX 5. When it comes to baseball cards issued before the Second World War, the Honus Wagner T206 is the undisputed king. But after that great conflict, the 1952 Topps card featuring a young Mickey Mantle claims the prize as the most coveted and valuable post-WW II card in the hobby. Here we present a fine example of the card on every collector's wish list, picturing a young legend looking skyward toward destiny.

    The offered example has been graded SGC 60 EX 5. Colors are gorgeous, deep and supple. Printing and registration - The portrait is tight and there are no specs or stray ink. Borders - Clean, with a glowing white aura. Edges/Surfaces well above expected for the grade level. Mantle card market is surging as we speak with investment-minded collectors powering the rising tide. This is a very strong example considering it is at the middle of the grading scale.
