The Absolute GEM of my Collection .. 1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle

I am still giddy that I have this card! I picked it up a couple weeks ago and it just makes me happy to have it be the number one card in my entire collection! It's not in perfect shape but it still looks quite good and the picture is quite sharp. I'll let the picture speak for itself.

The Main Event of my Mantle collection:

Graded 2 but there isn't any major flaws. The back is clean as well! This was the last piece of the Mantle puzzle and it carried a steep price but it was worth every penny! I will let the card speak for itself!

I hope everyone enjoyed my Mantle Series! I'm not sure which player I'm going to go after next, but I enjoyed chasing these cards too much, so I'm pretty sure I'm going to give it a go for more vintage fun!

Now that you've seen all the Mantles (minus 52 Topps) what's your favorite? Personally, I'm still partial to 1955 Bowman thats the card that started this chase!
