Another PSA 7-graded 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle rookie card has left the building. Was it a bargain?

Memory Lane Inc. sold a 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle for $32,775 in it’s August 2006 auction. Now, the company has snapped up another.

The most popular 1950s vintage baseball card continues to be strong.

A PSA 7 (no qualifiers) card closed on eBay over the weekend with a final selling price of $22,322. That’s over $10K less than the last one ML sold as well as several other near mint copies that have changed hands this summer. Two eBay sales were recorded –one in June and another in August for $30,200 and $31,600.

The card that sold this weekend garnered only 13 bids, thanks likely to it’s three-day run.
