Regional Classic! Graded Authentic by PSA. Only nine total examples of the offered 1953-54 Briggs Meats Mickey Mantle card have been validated by the grading service! The portrait of the Yankee superstar was obviously admired by customers and manufacturers alike as it was also replicated in the Dan-Dee Potato Chips and Stahl-Meyer Franks issues. The 1953-54 Briggs Meats series was unlike others of the day (Esskay, Hunter) in that it not only depicted members of the hometown Washington Senators but also that of the New York big league squads! A premier example that was meticulously extracted from its original confines as evidenced by its accurate centering and relatively even cut. Exhibits only moderate perimeter wear and reverse hot dog packaging impressions common to the issue. Slight instances of reverse wrinkling do not protrude the front surface. Undoubtedly one of the finest such specimens ever offered! Flip provenance from the Bill Wilen Collection.
