The offered 1951 Bowman Baseball #253 Mickey Mantle rookie high number is undoubtedly one of the "hottest" cards in the post-war hobby. With 1952 Topps Mantles out of reach for most collectors, this "true" Mantle rookie (which pre-dates the 1952 Topps version by almost a year) is a tantalizing alternative. Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA. This particular example is well centered with only modest corner touches and off-white edges. The horizontal batting pose is crease-free and perfectly focused with striking visual/player accents. Additionally, the reverse is entirely wax stain-free. Exhibits outstanding eye appeal and would not appear out of place in a higher graded holder.
