1953 Topps Mickey Mantle Signed Baseball Card
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $1,777.50
1953 Topps Mickey Mantle (card #82) boldly signed by Mantle in blue Sharpie (grading "10") on the front. This is a particularly outstanding and beautifully signed example of one of Mantle's most impressive and classic early baseball cards. 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 been encapsulated and graded VG 3 by PSA/DNA, mainly for a light vertical crease that extends from the top border to the brim of Mantle's cap (only visible from certain angles) and general corner wear (the signature was not graded by the company, but only certified as being authentic). Although technically in Very Good condition it displays at a much stronger level. This is an outstanding early signed Mantle card in all respects with a flawless and ideally placed signature. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500+. SOLD FOR $1,777.50
