Listing Details

Perhaps the hottest card in the world right now, this is the true Rookie Card of none other than Mickey Mantle. A tougher high number, this is of course the absolute key to this classic Bowman set and it has never been an easy card to find. These have been appreciating very rapidly in recent years, and it is not hard to see why. The offered card is as sharp a card as most of us will ever get to own for one of these, it is a fine looking PSA 6 oc. The card has a perfect image, the color is perfect, there are no print lines or marks. The surfaces are clean, the borders are white, the back is clean. All four corners come to square points. Heavy centering to the top border is the only distraction here, as it is a horizontal card, this is not nearly as distracting as a standard layout card heavily centered to one side or the other. Two PSA 6s has sold or over $23,000 this year, it will be interesting how much the off-center qualifier is valued by our bidders. We will start this important card at a real fraction of its value with no reserve, and letís just see what happens.
