Lot # 1092 (of 1743)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

Autographed 1953 Topps #82 Mickey Mantle PSA/DNA

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,410

1953 Topps Mickey Mantle (card #82) signed by Mantle in fine-point blue marker (grading "10") on the front. This is a particularly outstanding and beautifully signed example of one of Mantle's most impressive and classic early baseball cards. Encapsulated and labeled "Authentic" (relating to the autograph) by PSA/DNA. Mantle-signed baseball cards, especially those dating from the 1950s, have always been highly prized by autograph collectors. This particular card dates from his third season with the Yankees and is the second Mantle card ever issued by Topps. The card displays a few very light diagonal surface creases (difficult to see when viewing the card straight on) and moderate corner wear. A few small areas of surface paper loss are evident on the reverse. Although technically in Very Good condition it displays at a much stronger level. This is an outstanding early signed Mantle card in all respects with a flawless and ideally placed signature. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500+. SOLD FOR $1,410
