This is the only recognized rookie card of The Mick. Mickey Mantle is, quite simply, the most widely collected figure in the hobby. While his 1952 Topps card receives a tremendous amount of fanfare, some collectors forget that this is his only true rookie. This incredibly important card is subject to numerous condition obstacles. As with most high-numbered cards in the set, the 1951 Mantle Rookie card commonly suffers from print lines, wax stains along the reverse and poor centering. This card up for auction however, has great eye appeal and is nicely centered. PSA 4 and 5 examples have sold upwards of $20,000 on this card. This card appears G-VG and doesn't appear to have any alterations, with a very clean back and excellent printing quality.
