voted no, too overshadowed by the 52 Topps.

Wow, on the initial vote it missed by 2 votes. Time has not been kind this card.

Ditto. This was the reason for my vote on this card as well.

On a slightly unrelated note...why is the 51 bowman Mays more accepted as his true rookie...than the 52 topps mays...yet mantle is the opposite?

I don't consider the 52 Topps Mantle his rookie because it isn't. The reason it gets so much press is because it is much harder to find than a 51 Bowman and it looks much better and sells for a whole lot more.

The 1952 Topps is neither Mays' rookie, nor Mantle's. Mantle's gets more attention because it is a high number in the set, and thus tougher than the Mays - for example. The 51 Bowman is the rookie card.

the 52 topps mantle is a high number...I am aware of that...wasn't it a doubleprint within the high #'s? Is it really that much/if any tougher than the 51 bowman?

It was a double print, but with the 311 card number, it is supposedly "less common". (I won't use the term scarce, because... well, it's not.)

Voting is closed. An amazing drop of support for this card. It went from 2 votes short last time to a resounding NO this time.
