1952 Topps Mickey Mantle #311 Rookie Card PSA 1. A beautiful example of an entry level 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle PSA 1 rookie card. Card has great colors and looks decent for the grade.This is one of the holy grail of baseball cards! A great collector's item and investment! Like with all things graded in the collectibles industry, I have learned that grading is subjective and it is all about the eye appeal and not quite the grade.
This card graded as a poor (1.0), but upon looking at other 1.0 graded cards this one is one of the better looking 1.0's. I personally think it looks like a 1.5 with the major defects being on the back. I even showed the card to a local card store and said it looks better than the grade. I've seen 1.0's that are heavily creased, stained, or color/art missing.
This one has the moderate creasing, but it does not quite detract from the overall look of the card. Card was pulled by Platinum Card Breaks at a break.If you have any questions, please ask.
