Description

True Mantle Rookie! Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA. As one of the foundation pieces of the modern collecting hobby, the offered 1951 Bowman Baseball #253 Mickey Mantle rookie card is coveted by hobbyists the world over. This horizontal high number presents exceptionally well for the technical judgment and precedes the Topps "rookie" by a full season. The young Oklahoma slugger emerges from a cloudy stadium backdrop by exhibiting his switch-hitting prowess. The obverse displays a well concealed spider crease that is mostly hidden by the perfectly contrasted illustration. Despite a trace of reverse wax staining common to the issue, the biographical back detailing Mantle's rookie exploits is bright and clean.
