Listing Details

The ultimate Topps card, these have been so hot in recent years. Completely fresh to market, offered is a particularly attractive lower grade 52 Mantle. This card has perfectly rich color, clean surfaces, nice borders, a perfect image of Mickey and a clean back. The corners approach VG and exhibit consistent wear. PSA was somewhat harsh here, I have seen many, many weaker cards in 2s and even 2.5s over the years. There is a slight nick in the center of the left border, a fine surface crease by the lower right corner that does not crack the paper, and two other very, very minute surface wrinkles on the front. The back has a stray mark in the top border between the S in Charles and M in Mickey, it is otherwise perfectly clean. Despite these issues, the color and overall eye appeal sets this apart from nearly all 1.5s and many 2 and 2.5s as well. The winning bidder should really enjoy this classic card that is particularly strong and attractive for the grade.
