In terms of percentage, this splendid showpiece is among the 4% most-elite Topps Mantle rookies in the hobby. As small as this number is, however, and reflective as it may be of the card's superlative character, the figure stops short of addressing the item's true significance. The '52 Topps Mantle is desired by all, and sought-after by virtually every collector, but quality examples can be possessed only by very few. A card like this one, with its outstanding magnitude of projection, exquisitely refined colors and general top-grade state, tantalizes the enthusiast who is seeking a centerpiece. Meanwhile, it gently dismisses those who aren't, for whatever reason, quite ready to own a card of its stature. Here is Mantle at his very finest, in the form most universally appreciated by a devoted hobby industry. The offered card delivers sublime aesthetics from every perspective.

Graded NM-MT 8 by PSA. Hall of Famer, in his most revered Rookie Card appearance. Among a total of more than 1,700 copies recorded in PSA’s census reporting, just fourteen specimens have attained a higher, unqualified assessment. This outstanding card delivers condition to match its mystique. A glistening surface announces the card's presence to the eyes. Deep, rich portrait colors blaze against an intense and lustrous azure background. The image boasts superior registration, and the black-line frame containing it is nicely centered. The card's reverse is boldly printed and vividly legible. Here, we see one of the most impressive and valuable individual pieces in our entire hobby. This example puts forth tremendous visual appeal, and reflects indisputable Near Mint to Mint condition.
