1952 Topps Baseball #311 Mickey Mantle autographed card. The autograph was obtained at a fantasy baseball camp and is offered here for the first time. Although not his true rookie card, this issue has become synonymous with being "the" Mantle rookie card to own. It has been graded and encapsulated by PSA/DNA as Authentic. The autograph is in blue across Mantle's upheld hands and neck. Although somewhat faded, it is still clearly legible. The card itself appears to be short in the holder with smooth edges and a focused image of the young Mantle. All four corners exhibit rounding while the centering is off left to right. The reverse has multiple areas of paper loss on the top and bottom of the card. Overall, a rare and hobby fresh autographed find.
