1953 Bowman Color #59 Mickey Mantle - PSA NM-MT 8
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $3,259
Graded NM-MT 8 by PSA. Tremendous ultra high-grade example of this classic Mickey Mantle card. Bowman's third Mantle card is regarded by many as its best effort. The card features a magnificent photo of Mantle in his follow-through swing. Mantle looks like a youngster in his Yankee 45tripes (he was twenty-one years old in this photo) and the blue sky provides a perfect backdrop. This is the key card in the set and one of the cornerstones to a high-grade 1950s Mantle card collection. Crisp and clean, with perfect centering, and with extremely strong corners, this is a tremendous example of one of Mantle's earliest and most prized cards. SMR value is $2,800. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+.
SOLD FOR $3,259
