1961 Topps Mickey Mantle #300, PSA 7

Departing from the colored background of 1958 and 1959 and the bright, horizontal format of 1960, Topps released their 1961 set just as their original cards were designed: simply with attention on the player. The cards are bordered in white and a thin line of black, with two areas of color on the bottom where the player’s name, position, and team are shown. The remainder of the card is dominated by a colored, player portrait.
