1952 Topps Baseball Set Break Including Mickey Mantle Rookie Available

1952 Topps Baseball Set Break Including Mickey Mantle Rookie Available


The most iconic baseball card of all-time could yours. A complete set of 1952 Topps baseball cards is available and this incredible set includes the card of cards - a Mickey Mantle rookie card. Spots available in their card breaks for you to take home a piece of history.

In 1952, Topps released their set in multiple series during the baseball season. This idea sounded like a fine marketing tool at the time. By releasing cards numbered 1-80 in "series 1" and not releasing all 407 cards simultaneously, collectors would not be able to build a complete set of cards early in the baseball season. This would keep collectors purchasing cards all season, or so Topps and distributors thought. When Fall came around, collectors were more interested in football. The forgotten sixth series, cards #311 - 407, were disposed of by being dumped into the Atlantic Ocean! Guess which player has the majority of his rookie cards lost forever in a burial at sea? Mickey Mantle. Card #311 is Mickey Mantle's rookie card. Now YOU have the chance to take home this holy grail.




  • ALL 407 cards from the 1952 Topps set are included in the break
  • Mickey Mantle rookie #311 graded PSA 1
  • Jackie Robinson #312 graded PSA 3
  • Willie Mays rookie #261 graded PSA 3
  • Ed Matthews rookie #407 graded PSA 2.5
  • Roy Campanella, Pee Wee Reese, Warren Spahn, Yogi Berra, and more!

All cards, including the Mantle rookie is in this set break. With 407 cards in the set, we are only offering 407 spots in the set break - this ensures that you will take home a card from the set. The list of names is always randomized LIVE on the show as the break occurs; you have the same chance as everyone else in the break to land the cards you desire. For example, if after the random your name lands on spot #411, you take home the Mickey Mantle card! Every spot you purchase will bring a vintage card from this 1952 Topps set to your personal collection. A card to take you back in time to 1952 when I Love Lucy was the top TV show, the Detroit Lions were NFL Champions (yes, that's how long ago 1952 was; the Lions were good!), and a gallon of gas was only 20 CENTS. Back to the days of putting your cards in a shoebox with rubber bands around your stack to keep your cards together, playing FLIP with your extras, and putting cards in your bike spokes.


Each spot is only $395! For details and to purchase a spot, click here:
