Two 1953 Bowman Color #59 Mickey Mantle and 1952 Topps #1 Pafko (3 cards)
Starting Bid - $400.00 , Sold For - $2,115.00
This collection of three classic baseball cards includes two graded cards, one by PSA and one by SGC, and one card that was rejected as altered by PSA but is still a great-looking card. 1) 1952 Topps #1 Andy Pafko: graded EX 60 by SGC. This is a very fresh, sharp-looking card with bright colors, just the slightest hint of corner wear, and centered 30/70 T/B. 2) 1953 Bowman Color #59 Mickey Mantle: graded EX-MT 6 by PSA. Perfectly centered, with a flawless image, light, even wear to the corners, and a perfectly clean reverse. 3) Altered: 1953 Bowman Color #59 Mickey Mantle. This card has a strong Ex-Mt or better appearance, but apparently has a very slight trim (very likely along the top border), and was rejected for grading as "Altered" by PSA. This is still a great-looking ungraded Mantle card that many collectors would be thrilled to own. Total 3 cards. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $2,115.00
