Graded NM/MT 88 by SGC. Out of 636 examples of this card graded to date by SGC, only two examples are graded higher. Exceptional high-grade example of 1957 Topps #407 “Yankees’ Power Hitters” featuring Hall of Famers Mickey Mantle and Yogi Berra. Being the last card in the set, it is a condition rarity. Just as card #1 Williams was naturally subject to wear due to gravitating to the top of the pile as kids organized their cards by number in 1957, #407 Mantle/Berra was also subject to excessive wear at the bottom of the pile. This card has always been a very difficult card to find in anything even resembling high grade for anyone putting together a quality 1957 Topps set. Crisp and clean, both front and back, with centering slightly toward the bottom, perfect registration, and four square corners. An outstanding NM-MT example of one of the signature cards from the 1957 Topps set. Reserve $400. Estimate $1,000+.
