Graded MINT 9 by PSA. Presented is a stunning, high-end collectible featuring Mickey Mantle from the Yankees magical 1961 season. Expertly centered with four lethal corners that project out from the interior of the card as if they alone claim victory for this wonderful pasteboard. Rest assured, there is much more to this miniature masterpiece than just corners alone, as the picture quality is an uplifting joy that features a spectacularly crisp, jet-black background void of any unwanted distractions. The flesh tones in Mickey's face are so defined that the enthusiast is struck by the clarity and rosiness of the slugger's checks. The surface is a shimmering masterpiece that is held beneath a superlative layer of gloss, while the reverse displays a deeply-inked bio that is free of any distractions. The featured card is amongst the top 1.7% of all graded copies with one lone example having been graded higher. Strict MINT condition.
