Graded EX+ 70 by SGC (submitted by REA). Very attractive 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 four strong corners showing light wear at the tips, perfect registration, and centering just slightly towards the bottom left. The gray back is entirely clean. In our opinion, this card is very conservatively graded and would not look out of place in an Ex-Mt holder. 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+.
