The card received a near-mint grade of 8, which is outstanding condition for a card of this age.
A similar card with a 9 grade went for $5.2 million at an auction in January.
Trading cards have seen a massive spike in value in recent years, with collectors taking advantage of the long-term investment opportunity as an alternative to the stock market.
Mantle made his first of 20 All-Star teams in 1952 and finished third in the MVP balloting at the age of 20.
