Coming off of his 1956 MVP winning Triple Crown season, children and adults alike waited in anticipation for the release of the '57 Topps set and a chance to get a copy of their newly anointed superhero. Offered is the '57 Topps card of Mickey Mantle, graded PSA 8. While very nicely centered with four staunch corners that reach the next highest grading level, there is a slight touch of overspray from the dark backdrop in the upper left corner that encroaches into the snow white border, preventing the otherwise well-deserved half-grade increase. The reverse is uncommonly strong, sporting a combination of red and blue tints that sharply convey Mantle's history making accomplishments along with his career success to that point. Overall an amazing specimen that will feel right at home with the very best issues ever produced.
