1952 Topps Mickey Mantle Rookie Card Expected To Sell For Record-Shattering $10 Million At Heritage Auctions

Heritage Auctions is proud to announce a 1952 Mickey Mantle Topps rookie card is the centerpiece of the August 27-28 Summer Platinum Night Sports Auction. SGC has graded it 9.5 Mint+.

“This card is arguably the finest-condition example of the most iconic post-war card in the world,” says Chris Ivy, Heritage’s Director of Sports Auctions. “That grade, plus the fact it has documented provenance from the most storied find in hobby history, puts this card in a category of its own. The card more than lives up to Rosen’s claim when viewed in person.”

Ivy says he expects the Mantle to sell for more than $10 million, as this is a finer example than the PSA Mint 9 for which actor-entrepreneur Rob Gough paid a then-record-setting $5.2 million last year.
