For postcards, there is also a generic white one featuring a woman by the pool. I'm not sure about the date but I did find the same one from another Holiday Inn that has a postmark on it from the 1960s. I think there is a chance your unpostmarked one was produced in the 1960s but still trying to confirm.

For matchbooks, there is a black one featuring a sign--it looks just like the generic postcard you pictured. The back mentions something about a computer, so likely from after Mantle's involvement. The white Holiday Feeling one was the one I was speculating about--haven't seen one but assumed it existed. I need one if you ever come across one--they are likely way after Mantle's involvement but I'm a completionist and they are never more than a couple dollars. I don't think I've seen the brown or beige but will have to keep an eye out for them.

It's an awesome collection.

Nice pickups! The Transogram boxes are getting much more difficult to find with PSA now grading the disassembled ones.

Mantle cards. It's a full-blown addiction.

Thanks, fellas. Never seen that Rawlings before; learn something new every day especially about collecting The Mick.

Those Venezuelans are tough; I can feel them calling me one day, down the line.

I did not think I could get close to the high of finding the 51B and the 57T centered. Yet I was pretty pumped about this signed 1957; my expectations were managed in terms of a signed '57 between the card's usual focus and centering issues, and then Mick's tendency to sign the card vertically, across his body from head to toe. Was surprised to see a nice sig, horizontally placed, on a card with a crisp image.

Nice cards Matt. Especially the signed 59 and 65. I'm sorry I didn't see them first.

Here's a good look at one of the three Gem Mint 52 Mantle's, this one has a slight tilt.

Grabbed three new ones (to me) for my Mantle PSA collection at the Small Traditions auction last night. Put in some bids before going to bed and they held up. Bid on about 7 other auctions that weren't highest, but mostly 2nd place.



Seems like the 1960 Nu-Cards are much rarer than the 1961s, but they didn't cost much.
1960 #22 PSA POP of 72. 1961 #422 POP of 308.
1960 #50 POP of 60. 1961 #450 POP of 284. For $80 for both including BP, not too shabby. And SmallTraditions shipping/insurance was very reasonable.
