1953 Topps #82 Mickey Mantle - SGC NM 84

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $3,819

Graded NM 84 by SGC. Stunning ultra high-grade example of Mickey Mantle's second Topps card. We rarely see 1953 Topps Mickey Mantle cards that can hold a candle to this pack-fresh gem. This card is a traffic stopper. 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 extraordinarily strong and striking example is perfectly bright and clean, both front and back, with a flawless surface, four sharp corners showing just the ever-so-slightest touch of wear in the lower left, with particularly strong colors, and centering very slightly to the left (still exceptional centering). This is an amazing (and conservatively graded) ultra high-grade example of one of collecting's most famous cards that would be a worthy cornerstone to either a high-grade 1950s Mantle card collection or any world-class collection of classic baseball cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000. SOLD FOR $3,819
