I sold this a while back, there are 4 baseball stars in the set: Ruth, Mays, Koufax and the Mick (only Ruth can be found in the uncoated variety as well).

Here's one of mine that I don't believe has been shown

Mantle Quiz:

Altho this is not a card, it's a pose of Mantle that I have never seen anywhere else before. Can anyone identify where this is taken from?

It is from the back cover of Major League Baseball Digest from 1953. Robin Roberts is on the front cover

Good job Robert!

You are exactly right!

Here's the cover:

I think it is a terrific pic (or painting) of Mick & one I don't recall ever seeing anywhere else!

I just posted this in the 1956 card thread, but it is worth repeating here ...

On Mantle's 1956 Topps card, the first column of fans on the far left in the stands is repeated as the last column of fans on the right. Notice the guy with the suit and tie on, and the fellow with the horizontal stripe on his shirt leaning to his left.

Wow, very good catch. The 'pasted' fans look like Sox rooters, turning away and snubbing poor Mick.

Nah Steve, the stripe shirt guy is just "getting in Mick's ear" (literally). Probably yelling "noonan", or something not printable.

Either that, or they're just the first group to notice the giant Mantle head floating in the outfield. happy.gif

SCD just started a multi-part series on Mantle cards-they started with the oddball Topps, pretty good stuff. I have only skimmed the article but will look at it in depth tonight.

The rookie card is a classic pose.

1964

January 28 2009, 10:01 PM 

Here's a 1964 Topps Mantle, with the letter "Y" in Yankees appearing in yellow. Rather unusual ...

The bottom egde is straight but appears warped -- that's the plastic bag in the BVG slab (makes it tough to get real clean scans).

Note: I covered the BVG serial number

Hmmmm, that is an interesting color variation. Perhaps something obscured the final color pass on the Y? That would make it similar to a Herrer "error" in 58.

I suppose that is what happened. There's also a very small amount of red missing from the "A", on the side closest to the "Y".

Also, the yellow "Y" appears to be the exact same shade/tone as in Mickey's name at the bottom of the card.


Easily my most interesting Mantle card.

Given to me by my uncle when I was first starting to get the vintage bug, this one's been a sentimental favorite ever since.
