The true rookie card for this Yankees slugger, presented is a 1951 Bowman #253 Mickey Mantle. Judged a "50" by SGC, this mid-grade beauty is the first card in the more challenging high number set. With moderate but not excessive corner wear, this crease-free Mantle is downgraded only by minimal surface toning and maintains a clean back. Featuring the signature stance, which led "The Mick" to a first-ballot induction in the Hall of Fame, this horizontal beauty is a wise acquisition for the appreciative baseball fan.
