Lot 914: 1961 Topps #475 Mickey Mantle MVP (PSA 9)
Auction Date:6/26/2005 9:00 PM EST
The Mick in silhouette and pinstripes. A sharp red background. An important honor. What more could you want? The 1961 Topps #475 Mickey Mantle MVP card (MINT PSA 9) is an MVP itself among the five cards Topps issued of him that year. But all of them are valuable. This one is a very tough get, high in the series. This was Topps' first edition of MVP cards, so naturally Mantle, like honey to bees in the card market, was a natural choice to be featured. The reverse reveals statistics from his '56 and '57 MVP seasons that are still amazing.
