Lot # 1009 (of 1560)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

Autographed 1953 Topps #82 Mickey Mantle

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,938

1953 Topps Mickey Mantle (card #82) signed by Mantle in black ink (grading "9/10") on the front. Although the card was not signed by Mantle at the time of issue, his use of black ink, as opposed to blue or black Sharpie, helps to preserve the card's vintage integrity, thus making it much more appealing to collectors. This is a particularly outstanding and beautifully signed example of one of Mantle's most impressive and classic early baseball cards. Encapsulated and labeled "Authentic" (relating to the autograph) by PSA/DNA. Mantle-signed baseball cards, especially those dating from the 1950s, have always been highly prized by autograph collectors. This particular card dates from his third season with the Yankees and is the second Mantle card ever issued by Topps. The card has a little corner wear, and is free of creases. Bright and clean. In Very Good to Excellent condition. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+. SOLD FOR $2,938
