Graded NM-MT+ 8.5 by PSA. Out of an incredible 3,284 examples of this card graded to date by PSA, this is the ONLY example graded at this level, with only nine examples 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. Almost perfectly centered with pack-fresh corners. Clean, boldly printed reverse. An outstanding ultra high-grade example of one of the signature cards from the 1957 Topps set. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+.
