1968 Topps Game Mickey Mantle...yeah buddy!

So I'm still chasing down the 1968 Topps Game set and am getting pretty close, due largely in part because of a big lot that I recently picked up on eBay for around the price of a Blaster. I'll do an additional post on all the great cards and HOFers that came in this lot, but I wanted to show off this guy first and foremost. Not the greatest condition, but not horrible either. I love it. I still don't have what I consider a "real Mantle"...a regular old Topps base card...but I'm pretty damn happy with this.

More to come.


  1. Very Nice. 3 cards to go?

  2. Yep! Brooks Robinson, Claud Osteen and Rod Carew. None of them should be very tough to get, just looking for the best deal. There are a couple cards that I might eventually look to upgrade condition-wise.

  3. Nice! Good luck with the remaining 3!
