Presented is a beautiful example of the most sought-after baseball card in the world. This 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle card is absolutely spectacular. This card is one to display with the deep blue background, the corners are strong for the grade, the card is nearly centered almost perfectly all around, which is virtually unheard of for 1952 Topps Mantles. They are often found extremely off-center side to side or with a severe tilt to the image. The reverse is entirely clean and boldly printed with crisp red and black colors. Graded prior to SGC unveiling its new single-grade scale, this card appears to us to be entirely worthy of the awarded “20/1.5 Fair” grade, if not under-graded a bit. This is one of only a few 1952 Topps Mantle cards currently available on the auction market.

The 1952 Topps #311 Mickey Mantle has long been universally recognized as one of most iconic "blue chips" of all vintage baseball cards, and even just a glance at sales records clearly shows that over the years it has consistently risen in value in all grades. Recent auction results include a PSA 9 example which sold for a record $2.8 Million in a 2018 auction. Of course, every card is different and the market for 1952 Topps #311 Mantles in general appears be on an upward swing. Collectors understandably would not think it possible to purchase a 1952 Topps Mantle of this quality without spending far more than what this card lists for in this grade. One of card collecting's greatest classics, Mantle's Topps rookie card is the key to the 1952 Topps set, one of the most famous of all cards, and the single most popular and valuable postwar baseball card. This is a spectacularly bright, fresh, clean, world-class example of Mickey Mantle's most celebrated card, in a desirable grade. SGC 20 (1.5) Fair
