1953 Bowman Color #59 Mickey Mantle

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $3,300

Graded EX-MT+ 6.5 by SGC (submitted by REA and from an original-owner collection). Superb high-grade example of this classic Mickey Mantle card, bordering on Near Mint condition. Bowman's third Mantle card is regarded by many as its best effort. The card features a magnificent photo of Mantle in his follow-through swing. Mantle looks like a youngster in his Yankee pinstripes (he was twenty-one years old in this photo) and the blue sky provides a perfect backdrop. This is the key card in the set and one of the cornerstones to a high-grade 1950s Mantle card collection. Crisp and clean, with near-perfect centering, and with only the slightest hint of light, even wear on the corners. SOLD FOR $3,300
