I know this is a postwar card, but figured this would be the proper forum

Splendid looking card....the l/r centering must be right at the 65/35 threshold needed for a 9.

I think it was 20.

Quite the pull! And pretty cool that they got the "2018 National Break" notated on the flip.

Andy, thanks for uploading a scan.

Wow, 20 slots at $500 a slot.

The PSA pop for a MINT 9 1955 Bowman Mickey Mantle is now just 8 or 9; furthermore PSA stated in the article that they hadn't graded one as MINT for 20 years! That's a meager number of graded mint specimens, and probably the provenance on this particular one will give it higher cache. For sure, this Mantle can genuinely be described as "pack-fresh", and with it being immediately graded, that gives it further allure.

Great story from the National, that's for sure.

I saw that it has a rough cut on top and wondered where it was in the sheet. Here's one Huggin's and Scott sold at auction.
