1951 Bowman #253 Mickey Mantle Rookie

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $3,300

Graded VG 40 by SGC. Very attractive mid-grade example of Mickey Mantle's true rookie card. One of card collecting's greatest classics, Mantle's Bowman rookie card is the key to the 1951 Bowman set, and one of the most popular of all postwar baseball cards. This striking example has evenly rounded corners, a light paper wrinkle in the upper left, and centering towards the top, far better than normally encountered with this card. Crisp and bright colors. Perfect registration and with no distracting print lines as is so commonly found with this card. This is a very appealing mid-grade example of one of Mantle's most desirable and significant cards!  Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+. SOLD FOR $3,300
