Visually stunning example of Mickey Mantle's second Topps card. One of card collecting's greatest classics, Mantle's second Topps card is the key to the 1953 Topps set, and one of the most popular of all postwar baseball cards. Graded Authentic by SGC, this example has been slightly trimmed on all four edges. Bright and clean, both front and back, with four sharp corners, centering toward the top, and vibrant colors. While we would normally only offer this card in this grade in the context of a larger lot, we were struck by its incredible visual appeal and thought that collectors would agree that it should be presented individually as a unique opportunity to obtain a stunning example of this classic card, which presents as Near Mint, at a fraction of the cost of a numerically graded example. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
