Memory Lane Inc. will offer the first public showing of the finest known collection of Mickey Mantle baseball cards during this year’s National Sports Collectors Convention.

1953BOWMANCOLORThe California-based auction company will have the Donald E. Spence Mantle collection on display for collectors to enjoy inside the IX Center in Cleveland July 29-August 2.

The collection includes all 21 major Mantle cards in mint or gem mint condition, all of them authenticated and graded by PSA.  Every card is graded 9 or 10 and several are the highest graded Mantle cards in existence.

Collectors will be able to see the cards and have their picture taken with the “Million-Dollar Mantle card” — a PSA 10-graded 1951 Bowman Mantle rookie — at booth 101.

The collection grades out at a 9.53 on a 10-point scale, making it the No. 1 “set” of Mantle cards on PSA’s Set Registry.  Eleven of the cards been graded PSA 10 and the group was named to PSA’s Set Hall of Fame this year.
