This lot features the actual first year "rookie" card of New York Yankees legend Mickey Mantle in this 1951 Bowman card professionally graded in PSA 5 EX condition. "The Mick" made his big league debut with the Yankees in 1951 and exhibited flashes of his immense talent. This beauty would find it's way into collectors hands after that 1951 rookie season. Mickey Mantle is still considered by many to be the most popular baseball player of all-time. The young outfielder accepted the torch passed by the great DiMaggio, who had similarly followed in the path of Lou Gehrig. The 1951 season was Mantle's first in pinstripes and Bowman issued this card in that year's final, key series. Bowman's first vision of future greatness takes the form of this mini-artwork, rendered as a horizontal image set against the brightest skies. This card is conservatively graded a PSA 5 but could easily be seen in a 6 or 6.5 holder given its qualities. This card represents an exceptional investment opportunity given its actual scarcity. There have only been a grand total of 1,830 of these 1951 Mantle rookies graded by PSA with only 370 earning a higher grade than this this treasure. Bid aggressively on this beauty as these under graded true rookies are quickly becoming obsolete.
