1953 Topps #82 Mickey Mantle PSA NM 7

Starting Bid - $1,000.00 , Sold For - $5,287.50

Graded NM 7 by PSA. Extremely attractive high-grade example of Mickey Mantle's second Topps card. This is a stunning card! One of card collecting's greatest classics, Mantle's second Topps card is the key to the 1953 Topps set, and one of the most popular of all postwar baseball cards. This particularly strong and striking example is bright and clean, both front and back, has four sharp corners showing just the slightest hint of wear (predominately the upper left, and almost imperceptible), with particularly strong colors, and beautifully, almost perfectly, centered, just a couple degrees to the left. It would be hard not to like this card. All Mantle cards and 1953 Topps cards should look this good. This is an incredible high-grade Near Mint example of one of collecting's most famous cards, and would be a worthy cornerstone to either a high-grade 1950s Mantle card collection or any world-class collection of classic baseball cards. SMR value is $3,000. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000. SOLD FOR $5,287.50
