Great card (and welcome to the board)! In my experience, the highest grade SGC will give a card with a pinhole is a 20.

Mark, I am no grading expert, like many here are, but the Mantle looks well centered to me. Great card in any condition

Having it graded with a number or just as "authentic" would be my main goal on just about any 50s(and several 60s) Mantle base cards that may have a pinhole,tape, etc... I think 20 is probably the right technical grade, but the eye appeal is better than one would think if they heard a card was graded 20 sight unseen. Congrats! \:\)

Old, dense-headed hammers are cool. Best nail pounders.

I think that the pin hole by itself lands it in a 10 holder. There is no way a pin hole + tape on the front is getting into a 20 holder.

I'd be very happy to have that card! It has always been my favorite Mickey Mantle card. I had one given to me in 5th grade by a friend who didn't collect.
