Default My First Mantle

I've mainly focused on Padres and Bowman Chrome, but am going to start trying to collect more vintage.

Figured I would start with a solid Mantle. Seems pretty good for a PSA 5. Next on the list is the 56 Ted Willaims.

Hell yeah, that's solid! One of the first Mantles I bought as well. A classic.

Congrats!

Thanks everyone. Ive kind of held off on vintage because of the lack of Padres, but decided to start. Its a good way to connect to the history of the game, especially for a thirty one year old Padres fan.

That's a very nice PSA 5. It always amazes me how much eye-appeal can vary within an across grades; that looks as nice or nicer from 2-3 feet away as a PSA 6 or PSA 7 that isn't centered...

Welcome aboard.

Great Mantle. And Williams is a natural fit for a San Diego collector because back in 1937.....

How do you collect your Padres cards, team sets, individual players, base sets, inserts, test issues ?
