1968 Topps #280 Mickey Mantle PSA MINT 9
Starting Bid - $400.00 , Sold For - $1,057.50
Graded MINT 9 by PSA. Pack-fresh gem with a perfect image, no chipping whatsoever to the "grain" borders, a flawless reverse, and four razor-sharp corners. Centered very slightly to the bottom left. 1968 Topps Mantles are rarely seen this sharp. A quick look at the PSA population report shows that an almost incredible 4,284 examples of this card have been graded to date. Of these, however, only 105 have graded PSA MINT 9, with only eight PSA 10 examples ever graded. 1968 Topps cards typically suffer from a variety of condition problems, including print defects and a tendency to easily wear along the borders, which make Mint examples particularly difficult to find. This is a world-class example of one of Mantle's most classic cards, far exceeding the expectations for 1968 Topps. SMR value is $1,450. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200+. SOLD FOR $1,057.50
