Auction: Postwar Baseball - 1950s Cards
Graded VG 3 by PSA. Mid-grade example of Mickey Mantle's true rookie card. One of card collecting's classics, Mantle's Bowman rookie card is the key to the 1951 set and one of the most popular of all postwar baseball cards. This example has bright colors, a slightly out-of-focus image, honest corner wear, and centering toward the left. Boldly printed reverse. Please note there is a spot of paper loss along the top white border. This is a very presentable example of one of Mantle's most desirable and significant cards. Opening Bid $10.
