Mantle’s Topps Rookie card is the most readily identified post-war baseball card. Royalty in the field of card collecting, it is second only to the T-206 Honus Wagner card in notoriety. The offered example of arguably the most popular baseball card ever produced is in a rarified condition class. It has endured the better part of half a century suffering almost no discernable handling wear. The clear image is flawlessly printed, surrounded by unblemished borders that gauge 35/65 left to right and nearly 50/50 top to bottom. The corners fall easily within the NM-MT range under close scrutiny and the back remains clean and perfectly printed. Graded NM-MT GAI 8, this is an ultra-premium example of this widely revered icon in the field of card collecting.
