Card from Famous National Mickey Mantle 1955 Bowman Pack Comes Home to Vintage Breaks

Card from Famous National Mickey Mantle 1955 Bowman Pack Comes Home to Vintage Breaks


When we pulled a pack-fresh MICKEY MANTLE card out of a sealed 1955 Bowman baseball card pack, we were beyond stunned; there were truly no words to describe our excitement.  That pack will always be one our favorite card breaks of all-time!  Today, we get to relive that memory and welcome home one of the very cards from that famous pack back here to Vintage Breaks. 

WELCOME HOME!  When we pulled a Mickey Mantle card from a sealed pack of 1955 Bowman baseball cards LIVE on stage at the National, like you - we couldn't believe our eyes.  That day is very special to us here at Vintage Breaks.  Today, we are proud to bring home one of the cards from that card break! 


This Marv Grissom, card #123 in the set, came in spot 8 to Matt Payne.  Since we were at the National, we had the cards graded on the spot with PSA - you can see the special label: 2018 National Break.  Here is Marv coming right out of the pack:



We were lucky enough to see post from a seller on our Twitter account from DR Slab (@SlabCollector) offering the Marv Grissom for sale.  We HAD to buy this card!  The provenance on these cards is undeniable and quite the attribute to each card we pulled from the famed pack.  Since these cards rolled out of the factory in 1955, this Marv Grissom hadn't seen the light of day until 2018.  From there, we could always track back to the exact moment in time this card was pulled, and who has owned it.  A card nearly 70-years-old that was never lost in a game of FLIP or traded a dozen times before being put into bike spokes - few cards from the 50's like that will ever carry such provenance.  A huge thank you to Dr. Slab for the sale! 

We're not quite sure what we are going to do with this special card.  While it would look nice framed here at the VB office, we may give this card away to you as a prize in an upcoming contest; we know you'll take great card of this card from here on out.
