Graded NM+ 7.5 by PSA (submitted by REA). Superb high-grade 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. This is a gorgeous high-grade example that is one of the highlights of an original-owner collection consigned to this auction. Crisp and clean, with outstanding centering (very slightly to the top), four strong corners, flawless bright colors, and perfect clarity and registration. Clean reverse. Outstanding example of 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 $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+.
