1957 Topps #95 Mickey Mantle SGC NM/MT 88
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $2,370.00
Graded NM/MT 88 by SGC. Stunning high-grade example of what is universally recognized as one of Mantle's most classic cards. In addition to being one of Mantle's most striking and popular cards, this card dates from one of Mantle's MVP years and follows his finest season (1956 triple crown stats: 52 home runs, 130 RBI, .353 batting average). Getting this card in a pack in 1957 was as good as it got. The image used on the card features a young "Mick" in a mighty swing-thru pose. This is a particularly sharp example, with perfect registration and flawless surface. Centered very slightly to the left (approximately 40/60 L/R) with snow-white borders, four sharp corners, and a flawless reverse. This is a very strong card. Magnificent high-grade example of Mickey Mantle, the key card from the 1957 Topps set. The equivalent SMR value for the assigned grade is $2,250. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $2,370.00
