Over the course of his 18-year career with the Yankees, Mickey Mantle was selected to 20 All-Star Games, won 7 World Series, and was a 3-time AL MVP. In 1957, as Mantle won his second consecutive AL MVP, Topps released a set that established many popular features of the modern baseball card. The 407-card set was the first to measure 2-½” by 3-½”, which became industry-standard, and featured full-color photographs of the players. Rally’s #57MANTLE is a 1957 Topps #95 Mickey Mantle card graded PSA 8. As 1 of 277 examples at the grade, there are just 38 graded higher out of more than 5,600 examples in PSA’s population.
