As what is quite likely the most widely appreciated piece of gumpack artwork ever created by the Brooklyn confectioner, the sight of this splendid collectible never fails to impress.

If they're being honest, enthusiasts will confess that the spectacle of a brightly hued, gently handled Mantle rookie like this one will often dance through their daydreams as often as it enlivens the brain's activity during the deepest slumber. The incomparable depiction, with its marvelous facial tones, sky-blue background and color-detailing of the bat and Yankees logo, is realized vividly in this copy. Clean white borders complement the quality of the card's presentation, and insignificant traces of corner wear pose no distraction. The offered showpiece captures to perfection all of the magic inherent in the cherished 1952 Topps Mantle. The introduction of Mantle's Topps rookie card doesn't just improve a collection, or merely elevate one. This subject has the power to transform even the most painstakingly assembled gallery into an array that's truly special, truly dynamic. Mantle's magnetism in its '52 Topps incarnation is that great ... and wholly irresistible. Here is a potential "dream come true" acquisition, in very appealing Excellent condition.
