1952 Bowman Mickey Mantle PSA GEM MINT 10

Starting Bid - $10,000.00, Sold For - $43,125.00

Graded GEM MINT 10 by PSA. The finest example in the world of one of collecting's most classic cards, the 1952 Bowman #101 Mickey Mantle. Only two examples of 1952 Bowman Mickey Mantle have ever been graded PSA 10 GEM MINT. It is very rare for any card of this vintage to be in such perfect condition as to warrant this ultimate grade. The corners are perfect and razor-sharp. The colors are bright, crisp, and absolutely flawless. The card is perfectly clean, front and back, with snow-white borders. The registration is flawless. The centering is virtually perfect, perhaps 49/51 left to right, which is extraordinary for 1952 Bowman, and the reverse also has virtually perfect centering. This card is one of the few elite examples of early Mantle cards graded GEM MINT 10 by PSA. Among the early key Mantle cards, there are only one 1951 Bowman, two 1952 Bowman, three 1952 Topps, one 1953 Topps, and one 1953 Bowman Mickey Mantle which have ever been graded GEM MINT 10 by PSA. A worthy centerpiece to even the most advanced collection, this is a simply incredible example in all respects of one of Mickey Mantle's most important cards, and one of the most recognizable cards in all of card collecting. Reserve $10,000. Estimate $40,000/$60,000. SOLD FOR $43,125.00
