Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA. Hall of Famer, in his Topps Rookie Card appearance. This 1952 Topps "High Number"-series collectible delivers striking visual appeal for its grade. The exceptionally deep coloration of this card, especially its familiar aqua-hued background, retains a large measure of its brightness. The slugger's bat is an almost luminescent yellow, and the white interlocking "NY" on the front of Mickey's cap contrasts sharply against dark navy blue. The remarkably well-aligned central image enjoys favorable enhancement through an attractively white, balanced framework. All four corners, though conceding moderate, honest wear, are more solidly defined than the grading evaluation leads the observer to expect, and the reverse is clearly printed. Strictly speaking, the piece's grade, based on mostly unobtrusive vestiges of wear at the corners and a speck of discoloration in the signature field, is accurately ascribed. Upon viewing this card, however, most collectors would agree that it possesses an appearance that is far superior to what one imagines upon hearing the term "VG/EX." This is the Mick's most famous card, presented in alluring and highly collectable Very Good to Excellent condition.
