Catapulting to baseball stardom in a “New York Minute,” Mickey Mantle is once again spotlighted on the offered 1953 Topps #82 cornerstone. Graded NM-MT 8 by PSA, this elite second-year card displays accurate centering, razor-sharp corners and creamy white edges. The surface, which is enriched by gorgeous Kodachrome accenting, exhibits pinpoint surface registration and blistering hues. The reverse is equally as impressive with bold red-and-white text. Slight bleeding of the black ink near Mantle’s biographical information is noticeable only upon close scrutiny. Of the 2,000+ similar examples registered with the third-party service, this Mantle specimen resides in the top five percent of all judged. An impressive acquisition for PSA Set Registry combatants and Mantle enthusiasts alike.
