NJ brothers find 5 coveted 1952 Mickey Mantle cards in old collection

"And the brothers' collection is already doing quite well. There were 26 cards sold in Heritage's auction in July for a total of $384,000. That included a PSA 7.5 ($200,000) and a PSA 5 ($72,000) that both returned more than estimated.

The current auction has six cards from their collection, including the Mantle PSA 8.5 (valued at +$1M) and their final two Mantle cards — a PSA 7 estimated at $100,000 and another PSA 5 estimated at $40,000 — will be part of an offering in the fall.
