    Description

    1952 Topps Mickey Mantle #311 SGC 80 EX/NM 6. Originating from the highly coveted high number run that closed the first and some say the finest baseball card promotion ever - the 1952 Topps set of 407 cards. Many stars and HoFers make appearance in the first series but Topps held back a few established New Yorkers for the final push like Roy Campanella, Pee Wee Reese and Leo Durocher plus Gil McDougald, Al Dark and making his first appearance after his famous home run, Bobby Thomson. And yes, a relative future bonafide baseball legend in Mickey Mantle.

    Without a doubt, this is the most important and sought after of all post-war cards. This clean and very colorful example has been graded SGC 80 EX/NM 6. Centering is close to precise which brings out the quality of the clean and bright white frame. The quality frame greatly compliments the rich colors of the now iconic portrait. Largely unhandled for close to sixty-five years has left a fresh layer of gloss. It is a card that captures your attention and confirms the advice, but the card, not the holder.
