Graded 80 EX-MT 6 by SGC. A stellar example of Mantle's "true" rookie card that displays the image of a boy playing a manís game; Mantle proved that the boy was ready. Serious hobbyists are fully aware that 1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle high number rookies exist in quantities far too small to satisfy collector demand. Significantly, the offered card displays virtually none of the vertical print streaking that typically infects this tiny tribute. The crystal clean reverse exhibits no wax stains or toning that is apparent on many of the same issue. The overall appeal of this gem far outweighs the extreme light wear on the corners. The wonderfully appealing piece delivers tremendous color and sharp image focus. This is a glittering example of the Commerce Cometís most undervalued card.
