Graded FR 1.5 by PSA. It’s not the most valuable card in the industry and by no means is it the scarcest. In fact, this isn't even his true “rookie” card. Nevertheless, Mickey Mantle's 1952 Topps card is one of the true icons of our hobby and is instantly recognized, even by non-collectors. Every enthusiast covets a Topps "rookie" card of Mickey Mantle, and no serious baseball card collection can be considered complete without one. The offered example stands as a relatively affordable, low grade specimen. The piece exhibits natural effects of handling, mainly in corner rounding and a series of vertical creases (most noticeable on the reverse): it has clearly been held and revered, but not abused. The card's back is clean. Fair condition.
