Here is an exceptionally presentable PSA 8 NM/MT example of The Mick's 1957 Topps issue. Near perfectly centered with a sharp NM/MT to MINT perimeter around a bold and minimally NM/MT surface, shimmering with an even application of gloss. While the perimeter of the photo shows perfect registration, with no one color application severely overlapping another, if at all, the focus of Mickey's face is not quite as sharp, and a few mite-sized flecks of red print can be observed throughout the extreme upper field. Centered, sharp, bold, and like-new, this is an ideal NM/MT specimen of an extraordinarily popular Mantle issue, bordering on the next grading tier and virtually unimprovable in its grade.
