1951 Bowman #253 Mickey Mantle SGC VG 40

Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $1,740.00

Graded VG 40 by SGC. Very attractive mid-grade example of Mickey Mantle's true rookie card. One of card collecting's greatest classics, Mantle's Bowman rookie card is the key to the 1951 Bowman set, and one of the most popular of all postwar baseball cards. This striking example has evenly rounded corners, a light paper wrinkle near the bottom border, a corner crease in the upper right, and 65/35 centering left to right. Crisp and bright colors. Clean front and back. Perfect registration and with no distracting print lines as is so commonly found with this card. This is a very appealing mid-grade example with an overall appearance stronger than its technically accurate grade of Very Good. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $1,740.00
