1956 Sports Illustrated Mickey Mantle Cover CGC NM 9.4
Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $948.00
High-grade example of the June 18, 1956, issue of Sports Illustrated featuring Mickey Mantle on the cover. Encapsulated and graded 9.4 (with white pages) by CGC. Dating from the midway point of both his MVP and Triple Crown season, this is one of Mantle's most famous cover images and has always been a favorite among collectors. This example is distinguished by its remarkable state of preservation. Aside from the tiniest bit of light stress creases along the spine, the magazine looks exactly as it did when it first came off the press fifty-seven years ago! An ideal ultra high-grade example of one of the most displayable and classic of all Mantle Sports Illustrated cover issues. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $948.00
