Graded MINT 9 by PSA. Hall of Famer. Among more than 5,700 copies recorded in PSA’s census reporting, just four examples have been placed at a higher tier. A genuinely Mint 1956 Topps card, like the offered example picturing Mickey Mantle, is a thrill to view. Its luscious quality of presentation affords no distraction from the manufacturer's intended ideal, and the card's dual poses of the charismatic Yankee slugger project splendidly. Here, Mantle's likenesses are creditably well centered within four snow-white borders, and their radiance is exceptional. Also noteworthy is a full, uninterrupted measure of original gloss on the cardfront – an especially valued attribute for the relatively coarse card stock employed by Topps during the '50's. The card's reverse is perfectly printed and defect-free. Very slight rough cuts at the edges enhance the item's overall appearance, and contribute to its splendid, apparently never-touched visual character. In every respect, this is a stunning commemoration of Mantle's memorable, Triple Crown-winning season. Gorgeous Mint condition.
1956 Topps #135 Mickey Mantle, Gray Back – PSA MINT 9
