1952 Bowman #101 Mickey Mantle SGC NM 84

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,370

Graded NM 84 by SGC (submitted by REA). Extremely striking ultra high-grade example of one of collecting's most classic cards, the 1952 Bowman #101 Mickey Mantle. When this exceptional example was originally purchased by our consignor in the early 1990s (before professional grading became popular) it was described as NM-MT. It is easy to see why! 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, which is extraordinary for this card. The corners are strong and sharp, with just the slightest hint of touches visible under magnification. This is an outstanding 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. The equivalent SMR value is $2,000. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $2,370
