Not a high grade, but a pretty iconic card. No, it’s not the ‘52 Topps mantle or even a ‘51 Bowman Mantle, but this card has a cool story too. Mickey Mantle actually announced his retirement on March 1st, 1969, right before the season. His last game for the Yankees ended up being September 28th, 1968. Later on, when Topps released the 1969 set, Mickey Mantle’s card has his entire career stats on this one card. His entire Hall of Fame career is showcased on the back of this card. There are also versions that contain white lettering on his last name, and those variations actually sell much better compared to the yellow lettering. Definitely hoping to add a solid, higher grade to my collection one day, but for now this will work ⚾️ For all you Mantle fans out there, what year would be your favorite Mantle card?
