True Mantle Rookie! Graded 60 EX 5 by SGC. Breathtaking 1951 Bowman Baseball #253 Mickey Mantle rookie high number. The switch-hitting phenom showcases his hitting acumen as he bats from the right side of the plate against a cloudy ballpark setting. Presents exceptionally well for its technical grade with relatively crisp corners and slightly off-white edges which frames the boldly hued illustration. While traces of wax staining frequently plague singles from the 1951 Bowman Baseball issue, this early "Commerce Comet" has avoided that flaw. An impressive specimen worthy of considerable bidding interest.
