After reading the arguments posted, I am extremely wary about this card. With the photo being taken in 1952 and General Mills not having any info on it, I simply will not spend that kind of money on it. The theory that these may have been "planted" in the market 20 years ago makes enough sense for me to pass on this issue.
Right. I take it for granted that the research has been done and the years established on items. I had been doing research and ran across this thread a few months ago. Then as I saw prices going up for 1951 items, it seemed to me that someone else may benefit from this thread. Even if in the end they felt this could have been issued in 1951, at least they have been educated.

For reference reasons: Added pics of TYPE 1 PHOTO (auctioning off by SCP March 2016)

Lot #736:
10/6/1952 MICKEY MANTLE ORIGINAL PSA/DNA TYPE 1 PHOTOGRAPH TAKEN BY DON WINGFIELD BEFORE WORLD SERIES GAME 6 (HILLERICH & BRADSBY LOA)









Bidding



It's one of the most famous Mantle images ever shot, the work of renowned Yankees team photographer Don Wingfield, whose stamp appears on reverse. Wingfield's imagery has appeared in Life and Look magazines, innumerable team publications and even a variety of period trading cards. This particular shot, snapped at Ebbets Field during the 1952 World Series, was utilized for the Mantle representation in the 1951 Wheaties set. This apparent anachronistic impossibility would indicate that the Wheaties set was a multi-year issue, and one that utilized a bit of pre-Photoshop trickery as the Mick's road grays were lightened and pinstriped for a home field appearance, the Ebbets Field background eliminated in the process.
The black & white photo of Mantle in a batting pose was taken before Game 6 of the 1952 World Series against the Brooklyn Dodgers. Trailing 3 games to 2 in the series and nursing a 2-1 lead going into the top of the 8th, Mantle blasted a solo shot to give the Yankees the insurance run that proved to be the difference as they won the possible elimination game 3-2. The Yanks went on to defeat the Dodgers in the deciding Game 7. It's among the most iconic images of a young Mickey Mantle from the day he saved the 1952 World Series.

Short of a couple corner bends confined almost entirely to the white borders, the 8" by 10" image presents flawlessly, with secondary stamping on reverse attributing the first generation print to the collection of leading bat manufacturer Hillerich & Bradsby. A 2004 letter of provenance from John A. Hillerich IV confirms this history, and encapsulation from PSA/DNA assures Type 1 status.

LOA from Hillerich & Bradsby Co. PSA/DNA Type 1 cert# 1P04862

Default Thank you

Partial set of these in the Golden Auction.... includes Mantle..... but this is not for me. Glad to hear about all the uncertainties about the dates and the more I read the more I think this is a later and not earlier issue. Hence I will pass on these ..... and thanks to all who did the research! CAVEAT EMPTOR!! or something like that..........

You bumped a two year old thread to tell us about an auction you won't be bidding on? I'm assuming it's your consignment?

I know it`s a loooooooooooong shot but was hoping this auction item might fly "somewhat" under the radar. Oh well..................

Interesting read in these premiums! I bought one on eBay yesterday after doing some research but didnt see this thread until now 🙄
So even though these arent form 1951, they are still eye appealing and sell for a decent amount. At the end of the day, you either love it or not, regardless of the year.
