Mickey Mantle — 1952 Topps
Mickey Mantle is a name known by even non-sports fans. A Hall of Famer and three-time MVP for the New York Yankees, Mantle will forever be considered one of baseball’s greatest players. As a result, his baseball cards are highly sought after. In 2018, a ’52 Mantle was sold for nearly $2.9 million. While that number is astronomical, it is nothing compared the same card fetched this year. In January 2021, the Mint PSA 9 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle sold for $5.2 million. Three Gem Mint PSA 10’s exist…imagine what they would fetch if they are sold.
