So there's that - this card was Hand Cut. Is this true of all? Are they all hand cut? This information doesn't seem to be on other flips though SGC only added the 4th text line recently.

Just trying to provide more info to the thread and enjoying it.

And I know I've said it 5-6 times already, but I can't get over how young he looks! Can't get over it!!!

It's not hand cut. Google Mickey Mantle and "horse" for a fun young Mantle picture.

So you think the slab is a mistake? Check my posted photo. I will call Tuesday to inquire further and see if I can dig up any further info...

Yes. They aren't hand cut. It's a mistake but an insignificant one, in my opinion.

When I logged on to the SGC website yesterday, I was doing so because I hadn't since I got one of those super emails. If you are like me, then you'll agree with me; one of my favorite things is when they notify you that your card arrived safely. Major sigh of relief and then...well...you know what you are in for and Tom Petty was totally correct: the waiting IS the hardest part. Since I had put it in for 3 day service and it's an oversized card, I anticipated it taking a little bit longer - as indicated on the website. The 5x7 card size (and therefore, insert and holder size) isn't super common so I completely understand. It hadn't even been three full days yet anyway. However, I clicked on the invoice and there it was: a shipped date and a grade of 40 (3). This is a moment of pure joy for me; most of my Mickey cards are 3-5's and I try not to dip below a 3 (I have one still that I will upgrade eventually). So like I said originally, this was going to be all mentioned when I have card in hand (sounds like Monday) but when I logged back in today, the population report had already been updated! I wanted to credit SGC for their terrific turnaround time and updating of the population report. They now have 12 graded, and seeing that 1 under the 40 column and knowing it will soon be in my hands is a feeling unlike any I've had as a collector and one that, frankly, I may never have again.

As such, I wanted to share my excitement with all of you and add a note of gratitude as well. I won't go into great detail but there is literally no chance I even find this card for sale were it not for having joined this wonderful community. I don't know if there really is a ball field out in Iowa where the legends still play baseball but when they disappear into the corn after the game, I bet they log on to Net54...

You bet your bottom dollar a picture will be posted.

Thanks to all and please keep posting any more photos of your own, information you may have or anything else related!

Tim

I personally love this card. Almost pulled the trigger on one at last years national for no reason haha. SICK SICK SICK SICK SICK Find and congrats.

I also am in the camp that does not believe this is a 1951 issue. However, I did recently pick one up. Ben, the person who sent yours in to be graded must have sent the one I picked up also. It is the same grade with a PSA number one off from yours.

I also want to add that it is interesting that the photo has been used elsewhere as well.

The first photo below is the Baseball Magazine "poster." It is listed in SCD as being issued in 1952. Given the date the photo was taken, it must have been in late 1952. Does any one else have one of these? I'm curious if they all have "Mickey" misspelled.

Next is the photo included in the 1953 Yankees team photo set.

Next is the photo used on the front of the Time Out magazine issued in July 1953.

Next is the photo included in the 1955 Yankees "Action Photo" set.

And lastly is the photo from an unknown source. Anyone know the source of this photo and when it was issued?

Does anyone have any other examples of the photo being used for other purposes? Edited to add that there are two additional photos in the "everyday Mantle" thread. Chris and Mike have variations.
