#8054 - 1953 Bowman #59 Mickey Mantle PSA MINT 9 Estimate: $40,000+

Graded by PSA MINT 9. Only one specimen in the world has ever been graded higher. The 1953 Bowman Color release is among the most popular sets in our entire hobby, and the offered example depicting Mickey Mantle displays one of the series' finest nostalgic designs. With Topps' extremely popular and unexpected successful production of its oversized 1952 issue, Bowman went the extra mile, and its efforts in 1953 revolutionized the production of baseball cards, as it was the first issue to contain full color real photographs of current players. Their 1953 crisp and bright, full color-photo illustrations, unencumbered by text or extraneous decorative graphics, continue to be viewed today as miniature-masterpiece collectibles. The offered card is a top-quality expression of the beauty of the 1953 Bowman Color's appeal. Snow white borders frame Mantle's attention-grabbing, batting pose likeness. The card's superior color and focus, and its marvelous print quality, combine to yield nearly incomparable eye appeal. Its edges are fresh and original in appearance, and each of the item's snow-white borders reveal untouched tips at the corners. Here's an exhibition-caliber Hall of Fame subject from Bowman's most impressive issue ever produced. True PSA MINT 9 condition.
