A truly iconic piece of history, this photograph was used to create the iconic Mickey Mantle 1952 Topps card, considered the Mount Rushmore of cards. Taken circa 1951, there are only 3 Type I Authentic Original News Service Photos known in circulation - far more rare than even the 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle PSA 10, which has a population of 3. Many seasoned collectors believe a '52 Topps Mantle PSA 10 would sell for upwards of $20 million dollars today. This offering represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own the foundation, the underlying artwork, that produced arguably the most iconic and treasured sports card in history.


Also known as “The Mick” and “The Commerce Comet”, Mickey Mantle is seen as one of the greatest baseball players of all time. Mantle was a 20 time All-Star, 7 time World Series Champ and 3 time MVP. He achieved the Triple Crown achievement in 1956 and led the league in Home Runs 4 times. Mantle was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1974 and the Major League Baseball All-Century Team in 1999. Mantle still holds the World Series records for most Home Runs, RBIs, extra-base hits, runs, walks and total bases.

In addition, the Newark Evening News dated its publication as July 8, 1951 in the middle of his his stellar rookie season. ● The PSA Card Guide states, “The card is more pop culture art than mere baseball card at this point…the power of its image is greater than the sum of the card’s parts or attributes.
