Mickey Mantle Bowman 1951 Rookie Card #253 Graded 5:
month I came across a massive lot of these cards at a moving sale. Most of them are in card holders with a grade at the top. I have no clue who graded these and neither do any of the people I’ve shown them to. I will try and list a card a day in the coming months all from this collection.
Due to the the amount of cards I am selling there are NO REFUNDS. I’ve had people scam me in the past on to get free items. I’d rather sell the card for less money then deal with somebody demanding a refund so please only offer on the card if YOU WANT IT. As for the cards they are from the early 1900s throughout the 1980s. Some of the cards are in smaller custom holders.
This was only a baseball collection so don’t expect me to list cards involving other sports. Also there were a lot of rapper packs from the 1940s, 50s, and 60s at the bottom of the box these were in. If interested in the packs message me. Some of the packs are unopened. There was also a bunch of cards at the bottom of the box unprotected. Unfortunately those cards are in very bad condition. I tried to get as much info on the cards as possible. The lady selling them said they were a combination of her husbands as well as his dads. It looks like these cards were sent to two different grading company because there are two different grading styles. The older cards (pre 1960s) have a different grading style and the newer ones (post 1960s)
On This Card— this is a Mickey Mantle Bowman 1951 Rookie Card #253 Graded 5 - his real first rookie card. I brought some reprints of cards from this collection to try and see if these are real and the cards in the collection are definitely more lighter than the Reprints. As for the surface I can’t really tell considering I’d have to break the holder to get the card out. FYI-I showed my buddy who is a card collecter this and other cards in the lot and he said whoever graded these was very lenient.
