Default 59 Mantle

Trying to complete a mid-grade 50s base Mantle run. Its going to take a while for some of the early 50s cards but ambition is good, right? Happy to add this 1959 Topps example. Great color and centering.

Grabbed both these cards for the same amount as the snipe bid I set for just one.

Picked up a new version of the Holiday Inn matchbook cover with Mantle looking left over his shoulder. The latest pick-up is the one in the center. It is a much darker brown than the other brown ones. It is also slightly smaller at 4.9 mm versus 5.1 mm for the second from the top and 5 mm for the other three. If anyone has one that is different from the five I've posted, I would appreciate hearing about it. It helps to know what I need to be on the look out for.

They look great all together like that. That is all I have of him facing that direction. I have three variations facing the other direction--one with a white background around his face, one with an off white background, and one with blue matches. Then, although not an interest to you as I know its not in your collecting realm, four generic ones that may likely postdate his ownership a bit.

Chris, thanks for reminding me about the blue matches. I had forgotten that you had mentioned them before. I need to add them to my list of things to look for before I forget again.

Nice pickup Mike. Your full facing right green/black is beautiful!
I had the facing left with light brown but not the right.

The smaller size is interesting... no signs of trimming? Is the text the same size?

Feel free to update this "playing years" list if you have or know of any others
