A decades-old Mickey Mantle baseball card could break an auction record.
The Collector’s Item from 1952 features one of baseball’s most famous and attractive legends, and is widely regarded as one of the few in near-perfect condition.
It is estimated that the final cost of the card could exceed $10 million when the auction ends on August 27. The record is $6.6 million for a 1909 Honus Wagner card that was auctioned a year ago, months after another 70-year-old Mantle card was $5.2 million.
The interest was already huge on Monday when the online auction started, with bidding already reaching at least $4.2 million.
Regardless of the final price of a rare Mantle starter card, it would be a huge profit for the current owner, a New Jersey waste management entrepreneur who bought it for $50,000 at a New York City fair in 1991.
“Every time he gets on the plate, the crowd goes crazy, and there will be roars. And he never disappoints,” said card owner Anthony Giordano of Mantell, who spent his entire career with the New York Yankees from 1951 to 1968. “He had that aura about him. Whether or not you’re from the New York area, or a Yankees fan, Mickey Mantle has always been the spotlight.
His knockout mantle – “The Mick” – was a Triple Crown winner in 1956, a three-time NBA Most Valuable Player and a seven-time World Champion. The Hall of Famer, who died in 1995, was considered a humble player on the court. When he hit the house, he would often run the bases with his head bowed.
“I thought the bowler already felt bad enough without me showing him going around the rules,” Mantell once said.
As for the baseball card, its rarity equals the legendary reputation of its subject.
“Card quality is key,” said Derek Grady, executive vice president of sports auctions at Heritage Auctions, which runs the bidding. “Four sharp corners, luster and color jump away from the card.”
Grady said the collectibles market is experiencing a renaissance, noting that cards that are “creme de la crème, the best of the best, are still selling despite the economy at the moment” and that the mantle of the “king” of baseball cards, “has always done well.” “
Giordano, 75, said it was time to give the Mantle Card a new home.
“It’s the right thing to do,” he said. “My boys and I have had the cards for over 30 years, and we’ve been enjoying them. We have enjoyed showing anyone close to me – friends and relatives – and I think it’s time for someone else.”
The card will be shown in Atlantic City Wednesday through Sunday at the National Sports Collectors Conference, and at the New York office of Heritage Auctions the following week.
