When it comes to Mickey Mantle, the old saying "A rising tide lifts all boats" is certainly the case.  As prices realized for his 1952 Topps issue continue to rise to the stratosphere, prices for Mantle's subsequent issues are rising alongside it, particularly in higher grades.  Mantle's 1953 issue, once an affordable alternative to the 1952 with NM examples routinely available in the $3500 range, has risen at an exponential rate.  Our record-breaking sale of a PSA NM 7 example at $8,775 in 2015 has been left in the dust; that card has doubled in value over the last five years, with EX-MT examples now beginning to touch the five-figure milestone.

This example, graded EX-MT 6 by PSA, boasts strong eye appeal for the grade, with lightly-touched corners and top-to-bottom centering responsible for keeping the card from a higher holder.  The beautiful image of Mantle is clean and bold, however, the card exhibiting very little additional wear.  Simply a fantastic card, the key to the gorgeous 1953 Topps issue.
