Every Mickey Mantle issue is iconic within the baseball world, but the '57 Topps Mantle is special. Coming off of his 1956 MVP winning Triple Crown season, children and adults alike were thumbing through packs in anticipation of acquiring the latest issue of this superstar now turned superhero. We're fortunate enough to be able to offer more than one choice in this auction, and the presented example represents at the very highest standards of the PSA 8 classification. The rich tone of the solid, problem-free backdrop forces the observer into acknowledging the snow white, almost perfectly centered perimeter and accurately formed corners that are demanding of such a lofty assessment. Overall an amazing specimen that will feel right at home with the very best issues ever produced.
