Graded EX+ 5.5 by PSA. Pre-dating the acclaimed 1952 Topps #311 version by a year, this 1951 Bowman #253 Mickey Mantle is the “true” rookie card of the legendary slugger. This horizontal high number is crease-free and displays strong corners and edges. Despite modest centering issues, the “Commerce Comet” gleams with precise registration and penetrating background hues. The biographical reverse is clean and serves as a prelude for the Hall of Fame glory to come. An instantly recognizable centerpiece that will headline any classic Bowman collection.
