Freshly graded on behalf of our consignor at this summer's National Sports Collectors Convention in Chicago, here's an investment lot of six 1960 Topps #250 Mickey Mantle cards, all graded PSA 5 EX. All six cards appear at the upper end of the EX 5 grading spectrum, with one or two copies that might make a legitimate case for EX-MT 6. Whether you are buying them for eventual resale or simply because you can't own enough copies of this classic Mantle card, it's a smart move, as Mantle cards have done nothing but go up and up and up in value for nearly a decade now. Five and ten years ago, you could easily score a PSA 5 EX copy for under $200. The two most recent PSA 5 EX sales conducted earlier this month on eBay fetched $425 and $420 at auction. Whether another five or ten years brings prices back to the $200 range or up to $800 is anybody's guess, but it's a hobby maxim now that you can't go wrong with Mickey Mantle, the king of cardboard.
