Graded EX+ 5.5 by PSA. Hall of Famer, in his Topps Rookie Card appearance. Among nearly 1,700 copies recorded in PSA's census reporting, less than fifteen percent of those graded examples have achieved a higher tier. An iconic trading card picturing a New York Yankees legend, the offered relic stands as the flagship of its era's span of contemporary collectibles. This famous piece – from its issue's challenging series of "High Number" entries – is beloved for its image and design, treasured for its revered subject, and notorious for its perpetually short supply. In recent years, also, the '52 Topps Mantle has stood as a symbol of ever-increasing demand for the hobby's most coveted items; by extension, the card's consistently escalating price level brings about the unfortunate effect of depriving numerous collections from incorporating an attractive specimen of this key, showpiece depiction. The Mantle card presented here, however, even in the face of the hot-market trends that budget-minded collectors view with intimidation, qualifies as truly "ideal" on several levels. Most importantly, this Mantle rookie presents delectably, with a bright, fault-free illustration and a fresh, wholesome aura. The generally mild touches to the item's well-shaped corners bring about negligible detriment to the card's fully satisfying aesthetic, and essentially affect only the numerical grade adorning its PSA label. (Significantly, these nominal "faults" will likely serve to enhance the beautiful item's affordability.) A very special representation of one of the industry's most avidly sought-after pieces, in high-quality Excellent-plus condition.
