1952 Topps Baseball #314 Roy Campanella. This card originates from a new find of 1952 Topps baseball cards that recently surfaced in the Midwest. Highlights included two examples each for Mantle, Mays, and Robinson, as well as many high numbers. Our consignor's husband collected the cards as a child and, miraculously, nearly all avoided the common fate of being repeatedly flipped or placed in bike spokes. Instead, he carefully stored them in a shoe box, where they remained, untouched, for the past seventy years. The majority of the cards are in mid-to-high grade, with the only issue of note for most being centering. Three of the cards (Mantle, Mays, and Robinson) made their hobby debut in our Winter Focus Auction. The balance of the collection, including an EX-MT 6 Mantle, is offered here in this sale. All the graded cards in this collection were submitted by Lelands. The card has been graded and encapsulated by PSA EX-MT 6. It has a colorful image of a smiling Campanella against a bright yellow background. The borders are white while the edges appear smooth. All four corners have light touches. Centering is off left to right. The reverse is clean.
