Congrats on completing the run! I share your sentiment re: the 1955 Bowman.

Thanks Chris. If I hadn't decided to complete the run would never have bought one lol. But it made no sense to me to stop one card short.

Picked up another "low grade/high eye appeal" card for my Mantle display I'm working on.

I've been chipping away at this for a few months. Its taken longer than expected due to a couple "life issues", but i'm just about ready to bring everything to get it "pieced together".

I'd been looking for a couple "outside - the - box" items, and not your normal run of the mill basic Mantle run cards, combined with keeping the cost down on my project.
I always liked this particular image, for a variety of reasons.
Not only does he look happy, (which he did NOT always) , but I wanted something that dated itself from back in that time frame, not just another Mantle card.
One of these Post issues was right in my wheelhouse.

Down to needing 2 more items, then I'll be finished.




Got this for a measly $40 + shipping, so for that price and eye appeal, I couldn't resist.



This is going to have to be freed from its slab.
I've cracked out a couple PSA cards.....any tips on breaking this one out?

Found this at an antique store on Friday. Paid $4 for it. Best I can tell it's a post card from the stadium souvenir shop. That's what it says on the back anyways. It's got Mick and Musial.

I know it's not a card, but still kind of cool especially if it's actually from Yankee Stadium and not a reprint.

SGCs are the easiest. You should be able to run a butter knife or flathead screwdriver along the ridge on the side a few times and it will pop open.

My impression has always been that these were sold in the stadium. There seem to be a ton out there of this and other designs, so it’s possible they are either a fantasy piece (hard to believe as they are typically worth less tha. $10.00) or were produced over a long period of time so as to saturate the market. I don’t think any of mine are used/postmarked so I haven’t been able to confirm the date on them.

Default The Mick from a 1962 Post Cereal Supermarket Display!

Hi Guys:

Awhile back I obtained the below 1962 Post Cereal Supermarket display pieces showing the Mick!

First is a double sided 2' x 3' display banner with Mick on one side and Maris on the other. These were designed to hang over a wire above the display. This would look SUPER framed! It is available for sale or trade in the right deal. PM me if interested. The photo attached is much smaller compared to the others, but in reality it is much bigger

Second are a few photos of a whirl around display that had oversized cards including Mantle. The fold in the Mantle card is on purpose so the piece can be curved in order to create the whirl around display as shown in the lower photos, and also for shipping purposes.

Finally I have posted two photos of what the supermarket displays could look like featuring both the banner and the twirl around display.

Grabbed yet another "well worn" but decent eye appeal Mickey Mantles for my project.

This was always one of my favorite cards of his.





Almost done with this display I have been working on. Its dragged on a bit, but I am down to needing 1-2 items tops.

Got this one in the mail today. It's my first since I had to sell all of my vintage some years back. Just getting back into vintage now, and this is one of the first pickups.
