The offered strip of 1957 Topps cards features the most coveted card in the set, #95 Mickey Mantle. The strip is considerably larger than the standard 2-1/2 x 3-1/2 card with a large 3/8 border on the right side. The left side of this off-grade relic displays a standard border width. From top-to-bottom, the cards #119 Stan Lopata, #108 Tommy Byrne, #95 Mickey Mantle and #99 Bob Keegan. The left edges are a rough cut as opposed to the sharp right edge. There is a 1/4 cut on the left edge between Byrne and Mantle. The reverse of this rare artifact is clean although the rough cut is more prevalent. The overall condition of the piece is VG but the Mantle card presents as VG-EX.
