Mile High Giving Away Mantle Rookie at NSCC

Mile High Card Company gave away a 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle card at last year’s National Sports Collectors Convention.  This year, one lucky consignor will again be leaving with a big time bonus.

“Due to the fantastic response we received at last year’s National, we’ve decided this year that one of our loyal consignors will be the proud owner of a 1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle rookie card,” said MHCC President Brian Drent.  The card will be a PSA 3 or equivalent from another grading company.

Each $500 of value consigned to the October auction as determined by company earns one entry for the drawing. The bigger the consignment, the better the chances of winning, but everyone who consigns to MHCC at the National will be entered.  “It might be a six-figure consignment from a world-class collector or one card from a relative beginner, but everyone has a chance,” Drent stated.

MHCC will be set up at Booths #1401 and #1405 at the Atlantic City Convention Center from August 3-7.  They’ll also be exhibiting many of their feature items in the live auction that concludes on August 11..

Valued at approximately $5,000, the Mantle card will be given away at the MHCC booth on Sunday, August 7 at 3:00 PM. The winner need not be present and a video of the drawing will be featured on YouTube as well as the Mile High Card Company website at
