Mickey Mantle 1953 Topps #82 SGC VG 3
While it doesn’t receive as much attention as its predecessor, the 1952 Topps #311 Mantle rookie, the 1953 is definitely our favorite vintage Mantle Card in the hobby! We absolutely love the intimate portrait artwork and the vibrant colors.
This particular issue features incredible eye appeal, and in fact, the front looks more like a mid-grade card. However, light edgewear on the back of the card brings the overall grade to VG 3. There are no creases, borders are white, edges and corners remain sharp, and the centering is certainly above average. This is definitely one of the nicest cards you will find for the grade.
Great value for one of the hobby’s most coveted cards!
