Even though he's been gone for more than two decades, Mickey Mantle continues to set records. Most recently with the sale of his 1952 baseball card — one of the most sought-after items in sports memorabilia. The card sold for $5.2 million and is graded mint-9 by PSA through auction site PWCC — making it only one of a few in existence that has been graded this high. The sale bests the previous record, set with the sale of a 2009 Bowman autographed rookie card of Mike Trout which is one of a kind and sold for $3.9 million. The Mantle card last changed hands in 2018 when it sold for $2.88 million.
