1952 Topps #311 Mickey Mantle
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $4,800
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 encapsulated as "Authentic" by PSA due to evidence of added color on the front (several small touchups are visible in the crease located in the upper right corner). The most iconic cards such as the 1952 Topps #311 Mantle always have tremendous interest to collectors in all grades. In fact, while lower-grade examples are naturally more affordable, it is precisely for this reason that lower-grade examples of important cards often have even more collectors interested in them! While the card displays a number of obvious condition flaws besides the added color, it will undoubtedly be of enormous 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 $4,800
