In our June 2018 Summer Premium Auction, we sold a PSA 10 example of Yankees superstar Mickey Mantle's 1961 NU-Card Baseball Scoops #450 card for an impressive $3,566, shattering the hobby record for a card from this set. Whereas PSA has evaluated 292 examples of the Mick's 1961 NU-Card #450, in comparison it has examined only 78 copies of the Hall of Fame slugger's 1960 NU-Card Baseball Hi-Lites #22 card. Measuring 3-1/4" by 5-3/8", the 1960 NU-Cards are significantly larger and approximately four times as rare as their '61 counterparts. Offered here is a PSA 9 Mint-graded 1960 NU-Card #22 Mickey Mantle, one of just 7 specimens in this grade, with none ranking higher. Bordering on gem mint status—we cannot find any flaws—this oversized card celebrates the Yankee hero's fabled 565-foot home run in Washington's Griffith Stadium in 1953. A true Mantle masterpiece, this newspaper-inspired card provides all the Mantle news fit to print.
