Undoubtedly the most significant rookie issue of the post-war era, the premier card of Hall of Famer Mickey Mantle, with honorable mention to rookie cards of Willie Mays and Whitey Ford, paces the 1951 Bowman set. With each step up the PSA grading scale, the 1951 Bowman Mantle takes a huge leap in value and defines the strength of any advanced collection. While recent popularity has seen the upper-grade specimens increase exponentially in price, mid-grade examples are still within reach for many collectors, for now. The featured card is a respectable PSA 6 with sturdy endpoints and mild but tolerable positioning lightly toward the top horizontal edge. The iconic central image of Mantle provides plenty of deep color and a clean presentation while the reverse offers a striking contrast of the deeply blue inked bio set against the stark gray stock. A strong EX/MT example of this exceptionally popular rookie card of hobby icon Mickey Mantle.
