1951 Bowman Baseball #253 Mickey Mantle (R) card. The card ahs been graded and encapsulated by SGC as Authentic. This true rookie card of "The Mick" has a portion of the top right corner missing from the card. The three remaining corners are rounded while it is off center left to right and miscut top to bottom. The reverse has multiple areas of paper loss and residue from removal from a scrapbook. The image is slightly outof focus. Despite the noted flaws, this is an affordable chanceto own therookie card of the icon of a gemeration.
