This is the only recognized rookie card of The Mick. Mickey Mantle is, quite simply, the most widely collected figure in the hobby. He was the hero of choice during the 1950s and 1960s, inheriting centerfield from another Yankee legend Joe DiMaggio. This humble country boy moved to the big city where he became the most celebrated player of his generation. In 1951, Mantle made his debut for the Yankees as a part-time player. He managed just 13 homers but many of those were of the tape measure variety, something Mantle was known for throughout his career. This 16-time All-Star was robbed of his blazing speed after suffering a few terrible injuries along the way, but he would go on to become the most powerful slugger in the game. While his 1952 Topps card receives a tremendous amount of fanfare, some collectors forget that this is his only true rookie. This particular card up for auction has been graded a PSA 2 (MC) Good. While this isn't a high grade card, this card can be very difficult to obtain in any condition. Please see below for high quality images of the front & back of the card.
Mickey Mantle 1951 Bowman #253 - RC - Hi # - New York Yankees - PSA 2 - Good
