That's a beauty Dan!

Default Rare Mickey Mantle baseball cards pleasure reading ...

Since the first 3 chapters of my book on immediate post-war regionals, Never Cheaper By the Dozen, concerns a trio of important Commerce Comet items, I thought this might interest some of you Mickey Mantle collectors.

My book is available as an E-book on a CD, which I sell via mail order. However, it is also available as a digital download. If you go to Amazon's web site (SEE LINK BELOW), my book listing offers a free "Look Inside", where you'll find the table of contents, introduction, and the first two chapters.

Chapter 1 involves a mint condition 1962 JELL-O Apple Flavor complete unfolded box, with Mickey Mantle as the free prize card. Since purchasing this rare gem 30 years ago, I've not come across anther Mick like it. It may be unique.

Chapter 2 covers the gorgeous and majestic 1960 Post Cereal Mantle.

Free pleasure reading with lots of information, stories, memories, and insight.

Naturally, should you decide to purchase the 478-page E-book on a CD, I will service you swiftly, and if you prefer the Amazon digital download version, it's a snap.

Best regards to all. --- Brian Powell

Nice run of postcards and matchbooks Ben! It looks like you are missing just one matchbook (likely two but haven't confirmed the remaining one exists) and one postcard . Are the postcards that you are showing duplicates of variations or just extras? And any postmark on the black one? I've been trying to confirm the date but mine isn't postmarked.

Alright Chris you have to show me the postcard i don't have! A more modern one perhaps? No postmark on the black last one but after Mantle's involvement i would guess. Just showing duplicates.

i know i am missing the Holiday feeling Joplin matchbook...but i didn't count that one since Mantle isn't mentioned.
And i do have the other tint on the one ear. There were two more a light beige and brown after Mantle left from what i gather as well. If you know of another please share

Thanks Irv!
