(ABC NEWS) – It’s known as the Holy Grail of post-World War II baseball cards.
For the upcoming All-Star Game in Denver, a gem-mint 1952 Topps card of Hall of Famer Mickey Mantle made a grand entrance.
The first Topps card of the New York Yankees outfielder is part of the Hall of Legends exhibit at Denver’s Rally Hotel at McGregor Square, KUSA reported.
Normally, the card is kept in a bank vault, but on Saturday it was taken to the hotel in an armored car that was guarded by 15 Denver police officers, the television station reported.
The exhibit, located across the street from Coors Field, opened Saturday morning ahead of Tuesday’s Midsummer Classic, which was moved to the Mile High City from Atlanta in April.
The decision to move the game west was made after voting restrictions were passed by the Georgia Legislature and signed by Gov. Brian Kemp, according to The Associated Press.
The Mantle card will be on display through Tuesday, according to The Gazette of Colorado Springs.
