Default O/T:1952 Topps Mantle PSA 8.5 sells for record price at REA

Total 230 000$ + juice = 272 550$

Last 8.5 sold in 2010 for a little over 154 000$

That is a HUGE increase!!! I think the Mick deserves this type of price increase for such a nice looking card!!!

He was just making a comment. Our Adrian gets a little excited but I sure wish everyone on this board were as nice as him, seriously.

My medications knocked me out at around 10h45pm (took them to late yesterday because I wanted to be more active because of the REA so ended up taking them around 5h00pm instead of the normal noon hour) usually I can stay up till about 1h00am but yesterday my eyes just could no longer stay awake....my luck some times!!

I was able to add 3 new PSA 8 items to my Mantle master set so I was quite happy this morning finding them on Ebay!!

Default Value of Mantle

Adrian---the price for this card is even more amazing when compared to Mantle's salary in 1952. From the 12-28-52 NY Times

That's an insane price for a '52T with such an abundant availabilty. But, It is iconic and has been for a long, long time and I love it. If I were to own 3 cards over $100k each, this would probably be one of them. Wags, Ruth and Mick. The E107 Matty and Wags might edge it out though.

For what it's worth - the '52T Mantle belongs on every baseball thread. It transcends any era, much like the Wags.
