Autographed 1957 Topps #407 Mickey Mantle/Yogi Berra
Starting Bid - $400.00, Sold For - $1,276.00
Tremendous signed example of one of the most classic double-player cards ever issued, card #407 "Yankees' Power Hitters," featuring Mickey Mantle and Yogi Berra in their prime. This is one of the most popular cards of the 1950s. Though it needs no extra credentials, the fact that this is also the last card in the 1957 Topps set makes it considerably more difficult than most cards in the set to find in high grade, which gives the card all the more attention among collectors. We can't imagine there are many examples of this card which were ever signed by both Mantle and Berra. Each has signed with virtually flawless blue ink ballpoint signatures (both "8/9"), carefully placed over their respective images. The card itself is a beautiful high-grade example, bright and crisp, both front and back, centered just a little high top to bottom, with flawless colors, sharp corners, and perfect focus (which can sometimes be a problem with this card). Near Mint condition. LOAs from Mike Gutierrez/GAI and James Spence & Steve Grad/PSA DNA. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $1,276.00
