Mickey Mantle dominated the auction block on Saturday night in Dallas as Heritage Auctions‘ Platinum Night sports sale was topped by a pair of Mantles with very different attributes.
Yet both had very high demand.
Both items you see here — one a PSA 8 copy of his 1952 Topps card and the other being Mantle’s New York Yankees road jersey worn when he hit his 535th career home run on Sept. 19, 1968 — are six-figure items.
One went for $660,000 with a buyer’s premium while the other went for $486,000 and with that pair of facts we have these two questions for you.
Spoiler: Highlight the text after this on this line to learn more. The card sold for more.
