As "the face” of the modern collecting hobby, the prospect of owning a 1952 Topps Baseball #311 Mickey Mantle rookie is the stuff of countless collectors’ dreams. Regardless of perceived condition or technical flaws, the aspiration of owning the Topps high number debut of the “Commerce Comet” in any condition is an accomplishment that escalates a collection from the ordinary to markedly impressive. Graded Poor 1 by PSA. The offered 1952 Topps Baseball #311 Mickey Mantle rookie high number presents at the pinnacle of the technical grade and could warrant further re-submission consideration for a potential half-grade “bump”. While multiple instances of obverse creasing relegated to the facial region are significant, the overall presentation does not seriously suffer. Expected corner and edge wear along with other surface imperfections do not necessitate the technical judgment. The biographical reverse which rightly proclaims Mantle’s future is absent of any writing or obtrusive flaws. In short, it is difficult to conceive of a “Poor” Mantle rookie appearing any nicer than this copy!
