1956 Topps #135 Mickey Mantle - PSA NM-MT 8
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $3,525
Graded NM-MT 8 by PSA. Superb ultra high-grade example of the gray-back variety of this classic Mickey Mantle card, bordering on Mint condition. The 1956 Topps Mantle card is highly regarded by collectors on many counts. In addition to being a striking card with an exceptional design, this card dates from Mantle's Triple Crown season. Many consider this to be the quintessential Mantle card. This is a gorgeous high-grade example. Crisp and clean, with virtually perfect centering, flawless bright colors, perfect clarity and registration, and four sharp corners. The reverse of the card has a tiny mark next to the word "Oklahoma" and on the extreme left edge (mentioned strictly for the sake of accuracy). This is the key card in the set and one of the cornerstones to a high-grade 1950s Mantle card collection or a classic 1950s card collection. SMR value is $2,450. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $3,525
