Description



Graded 8.5 NM-MT+ by SGC. Monumental 1956 Topps Baseball #135 Mickey Mantle (gray back) variation. It is difficult to fathom how this brilliant specimen has survived so many decades in such incredible condition! This investment quality piece of the Triple Crown winner has the appearance of just being recently pulled from a wax pack. Exhibits impeccable centering, virtually untouched corners and fresh edges. The dual action/portrait pose is beautifully contrasted with breathtaking surface colors and player clarity. Additionally, the reverse which touts the phenom's diamond exploits is clean with bold text. This particular copy survives in the upper 1.6% of the 1,440 total Mantle variations judged by the authenticator.
