Lot # 560 (of 1512)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1952 Topps #311 Mickey Mantle

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $5,700

One of card collecting's greatest classics, Mantle's #311 Topps rookie card is the key to the 1952 Topps set, one of the most famous of all cards, and the single most popular and valuable postwar baseball card. This legendary card has always been one of the great classics of card collecting. The offered example is graded FAIR 20 by SGC (submitted by REA) and has been consigned to this auction by the original owner who purchased this card in a pack in 1952! (His other cards, including dozens more 1952 Topps, appear elsewhere in this auction.) While the card displays a number of obvious condition flaws, it will undoubtedly appeal to collectors looking to acquire an affordable example of the most popular and desirable postwar card ever produced. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+++. SOLD FOR $5,700
