Though we have not seen every example in person, over the years we have in-person seen nearly 1/3 of the examples that exist and have reviewed the images of nearly all other copies which have surfaced publicly. While opinions will range among different collectors with different tastes, it's our opinion that this example is certainly among the best examples that exist. Conservatively we are stating this card resides in the top 30% of all examples, but it's very possible that in a lineup this could be sighted as one of the best couple examples ever graded. This card really glows, boasting surfaces and overall cleanliness that could only be described as pack-fresh. Never does the centering look this good; technically about 2pts centered towards the top edge, but largely boasting an almost 50/50 appearance. The borders are extremely bright for the issue, having avoided the brown oxidation and yellow discoloration that so often plagues this issue. All four corners are undeniably square with extremely faint wisps of wear afflicting the upper right and lower left extreme points. The edges are extremely fresh and completely void of chipping or other related flaws. The back is easily as impressive as the front, showing virtually zero signs of circulation. The stars aligned when Topps manufacturing released this example from the production floor. Even more shocking is that since that fateful production run this card survived with such pristine preservation. This is truly a 'miracle card' in our view and largely sets a tone of perfection which we feel is virtually irreplaceable. From an investment perspective, few trading cards rise to the level of blue-chip status. and it's our opinion that the 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle is the single most desired and highly coveted blue chip trading card from all the post-war era productions (for all sports). Many argue this is the most important trading card ever made, and that stance certainly has merit. As the trading card marketplace matures, the investment aspects of these key issues are clearly leading the market forward, and the eye appeal relative to the assigned technical grade is rising in importance just as quickly. We feel this auction represents the finest of investment opportunities, not only because the card depicted is critically important, but also because the quality of this particular PSA 8 is industry leading. We are proud to be featuring this world class asset at public auction, free of reserve or other restrictions. We wish the bidding community the best of luck.

These cards have statistically sold at auction for 130%-200%+ of market average, depending on the eye appeal assessment rendered. The premium paid for cards in the top 30% of the eye appeal scale reveals an investment trend largely in its infancy. As a key investment variable, the eye appeal of a vintage trading card seems destined to have an increasingly significant impact on market value for the foreseeable future. Investors are encouraged to take notice of this important variable and invest accordingly.

Any buyer who does not pay for an item will be permanently blocked from bidding with PWCC and reported to eBay. Payment Options In addition to paying direct through eBay, PWCC is proud to offer several additional options to enable easier payment for auction winnings including short-term, zero interest payment plans, long-term, very low interest payment plans, and the option to consign-in-lieu of payment. Please contact PWCC with any questions about these payment options. PWCC Return Policy Our return policy is not a no-questions-asked return policy. Returns are only accepted if an item is misrepresented in the auction title, description, images, email, or phone communication. Buyer's remorse is not a valid reason for return. We strive to be reasonable in the event of a disagreement and ask that buyers afford us the same level of fairness. Misrepresentation of an auction item is exceedingly rare. We at PWCC are not professional graders so we trust in the reputation and opinion of 3rd party professional graders. Professional grading is subjective and different 3rd party graders will often disagree over the grading on a single card. Such a disagreement is not a justifiable reason for a return with PWCC. As a broker of graded trading cards, our responsibility is the accurate description and delivery of the item advertised; not to guarantee how a graded card will be assessed by different grading company. Any issue a buyer has with a card's professional grade should be addressed with the company that graded the card. Returned items must be received back in the condition they were received. Original shipping as well as return shipping will be refunded along with the full purchase price upon receiving back a returned item. Auction Integrity Safeguarding the integrity of bidding on our auctions is our highest priority. For the trading card marketplace to function effectively, the honesty and integrity of the participants must be ensured. Collectors deserve a bidding environment that is 100% legitimate and free from manipulation by the auction house, consignors, friends of consignors, friends of the auction house, or anyone else who seeks to exert artificial influence on the sale price. Bid Monitoring PWCC proactively monitors the behavior of bidders. We reserve the right to contact bidders who place bids outside the guidelines outlined below, and in some cases, we will choose to cancel bids and block bidders from participating in our auctions. All bid retractions and cancellations that violate eBay’s policy are reported daily to eBay. eBay reserves the right to enforce its policies. Any username with recurrent bid retractions across the eBay platform will be blocked from participating in further PWCC auctions. "String bidding", or placing a series of sequential bids at the minimum bid increment, can be perceived as bid manipulation because the practice allows a bidder to expose the maximum bid of another bidder without becoming the high bidder himself or herself. Any instances of string bidding will be flagged by our team. In cases of clear manipulation, string bids will be cancelled and offenders will be blocked. We ask that the bidding community assist us in identifying concerning bid behavior on any of our auctions. Please notify PWCC of any suspicious behavior by sending an email to our bid monitoring team. Contact information can be found on our website under the “Buyers” tab. Thank you for helping us ensure the integrity of the marketplace.
