NEW YORK (AP) – A mint condition 1952 Mickey Mantle baseball card could break records at auction.

The auction house estimates it could exceed $10 million.

The card’s current owner is a New Jersey waste management entrepreneur who bought the rare card for $50,000 in 1991 at a New York City card show.

Pre-bidding has started and the auction ends Aug. 27.

The record for a baseball card is $6.6 million, which was for a 1909 Honus Wagner card that was sold at auction a year ago.

Another Mantle card from 1952 went for $5.2 million last year.
