This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
Presented is a 1951 Bowman #253 Mickey Mantle rookie card that has been graded by PSA Good 2. This is the card referred to as the "real" rookie card, the scarce high number series item that precedes that "other' classic rookie piece (1952 Topps) by a full season. The card's appearance may understandably be stigmatized by its grade, to a degree, but the PSA evaluation doesn't negate the piece's flattering colors, clear image, or intact print features. Most of the negatives are concentrated about a right side creased area. Visual appeal, scarcity, and desirability remain as strong as ever. Very presentable Good condition.
