One of the most popular postwar cards in the hobby, the rookie card of Hall of Famer Mickey Mantle, as issued in the 1951 Bowman set.  The card is clean and colorful, the print registration strong for the issue.  Centering is notoriously off with this card, and this example as with many others sits at the top-right of the canvas.  Despite the flaw, the card is strong for the grade, with four square, slightly soft corners and a clean surface.  Overall image quality compensates for the centering.  As the prices of 1951 Mantles continue to skyrocket (PSA 6 examples are now touching $40,000), attractive collector-grade specimens are in high demand.  An exceptional specimen.
