The true rookie card of Yankees hero Mickey Mantle, the 1951 Bowman issue.  Along with the Willie Mays rookie, perhaps the greatest 1-2 punch in modern collecting, these two cards carry the immense popularity of the 1951 Bowman set on their backs.  Typically found off-center, this particular example does feature thin top and left borders but appears less obtrusive than other examples, perhaps due to the strong color and crisp image quality.  Regardless of centering, a strong, collector-grade example of an important postwar card.
