Grails By Lucky Cat - 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle Rookie Auto - T-Shirt - Marl Grey

Mickey Mantle nicknamed 'The Commerce Comet' and 'The Mick' was the greatest switch hitter of all time. Mantle played his entire Major League Baseball (MLB) career (1951–1968) with the New York Yankees as a center fielder, right fielder, and first baseman. Mantle was one of the best players and sluggers. Mantle was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1974 and was elected to the Major League Baseball All-Century Team in 1999.

Topps first entered the sports card market in 1952, making the set, and the Mantle card in particular, extremely popular.

Gough, who purchased the brand DOPE in 2017, told Forbes in an exclusive interview that there are three PSA-10 graded Mantles in existence but that he was informed each of those cards is in “strong hands,” meaning the owners have no interest in selling. (An owner was reportedly offered $20 million for one of the 10s but declined.)

It’s uncommon for a card of the 1952 Mantle’s caliber to come to market, so when the opportunity arose, Gough said he “had to scoop it,” adding, “I think I got a tremendous deal on this card.” Gough believes that the card was “massively undervalued” compared with other iconic cards on the market and that the $5.2 million price tag was “a steal.”
