The 1956 Topps Mickey Mantle is considered by numerous veteran collectors as the most attractive baseball card ever produced. It’s also an interesting study since Mantle, the beloved Yankee slugger, is depicted making an exception catch rather than launching a prodigious home run. At MINT 9, this card is nothing short of elite with eye-popping color, snow white borders and eye appeal that goes on for days. The surface, borders, and overall condition is nothing short of astonishing for a card produced 65 years ago. If you’re building a portfolio, this is a “must have” card at this grade.
