Graded EX-MT+ 6.5 by PSA. Magnificent example of the gray-back variety of this classic Mickey Mantle card. The 1956 Topps Mantle card is highly regarded by collectors on many counts. In addition to being a striking card with an exceptional design, this card dates from Mantle's Triple Crown season. Many consider this to be the quintessential Mantle card. Bright, crisp, and clean, with superb registration, and near-perfect centering. The gray back is entirely clean. Possessing three Near Mint or better corners, it appears that only an Ex-Mt upper right corner prevented this card from grading higher. This is the key card in the set and one of the cornerstones to a high-grade 1950s Mantle card collection or a classic 1950s card collection. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
