Description

Graded Authentic by SGC due to attempted surface restoration. Undaunted by the intense spotlight of being Joe DiMaggio’s heir apparent and playing in the nation’s largest media market, Mickey Mantle did not wilt under intense scrutiny. The boyhood idol to generations of young baseball fans, “The Commerce Comet” makes his debut on the offered 1952 Topps Baseball #311 high number. Extensive hobby lore surrounds this famed slab of cardboard. Suffice to say that this card is perpetually atop many wantlists and is desirable in any condition. Aside from the attempted restoration, this particular example otherwise presents (FR to GD) with well-handled corners, surface abrasions and multiple vertical spider creases. Despite those imperfections, the overall canvas still presents nicely and is a suitable proposition for those seeking a copy of this card. The reverse proclaiming Mantle’s future prospects is problem-free with bold text.
