Graded EX/NM 80 by SGC. Extremely attractive high-grade example of Mickey Mantle's second Topps card. One of card collecting's greatest classics, Mantle's second Topps card is the key to the 1953 Topps set, and one of the most popular of all postwar baseball cards. This striking example has just a slight touch of wear to the lower left corner, and is centered 65/35 left to right. The surface is flawless. The colors are bright and crisp. Very clean both front and back. This is a particularly strong example for 1953 Topps, an issue which is so condition-sensitive due to its flush-to-the-border design, with an overall appearance stronger than its technically accurate grade. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $1,422
