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. 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.

  2. Nice! Good luck with the remaining 3!
