Graded GEM MT 10 by PSA. Hall of Famer. This collectible hails from its issue's scarcer "High Number" series. Among more than 4,000 copies recorded in PSA's census reporting, just four examples have been placed at this specimen's pinnacle tier. Much as America's overwhelmingly egalitarian populace is nevertheless fascinated by royal figures from other lands, the hobby loves its aristocrats. And so it is with this absolutely regal collectible of the great Mickey Mantle. Produced at the onset of a forever-memorable decade, and competing head-to-head, as always, with Willie Mays, this 1960 Topps card of the superstar outfielder is a memento of consummate quality. Its patrician attributes include impeccable refinement in every aspect of printing and flawless edge cuts perfectly placed to afford exquisite centering. The horizontally fixed, photographic likeness of the card's revered player subject affords a crystal-clear, glowing window to greatness. Orange, blue and red graphics, completing the obverse presentation, are almost impossibly smooth and vivid. And, on the back, the item's visually soothing grey stock allows dynamic projection of the printed words, statistics, and comic thereon: both sides look as if they were struck just recently, and have yet to fully dry. Just as this imperial collectible must have overpowered those of Mays or any other challenger at its time of issue, it is assured to claim centerpiece status in the most sophisticated collection of today. There, once again, the cream will rise to the top, regardless of the competition. Here is the ultimate 1960 Topps Mantle artifact, in splendorous Gem Mint condition.
