Mickey Mantle's "True" Rookie! Graded 55 VG-EX+ 4.5 by SGC. Pre-dating the much advertised 1952 Topps high number by a full season, the offered 1951 Bowman Baseball #253 Mickey Mantle high number holds its rightful spot as the slugger's one and only rookie card. The horizontal rendering of the sensation is crease-free with only superficial corner and edge wear along with slightly errant centering. The intense illustration of Mantle is perfectly contrasted among a cloudy ballpark setting and features an exceedingly bright color scheme. Additionally, the reverse which details Mantle's phenom status is entirely absent of any wax staining which frequently plaques the issue. A fantastic debut card of the New York icon that will certainly receive spirited bidding interest!
