Nice pick-ups Ben, especially the '65 Challenge (I'm still looking for that one).
Chris, I hope you put my address on the Country Cookin' postcard that's in the mail.
Blinkme, a true Mantle rookie would always make for an awesome mail day. Congrats!

Even though I already have this Dormand postcard, I had to get this one because it was actually mailed in 1953. It also has a nice little note from a father to his son who is off in summer camp.

Not in the best condition, but pretty hard to find.

Love the used Dormand postcard--there is something special about postcards that were actually used. Love the 1960 Post as well! Pretty decent shape for the issue.

Default 1960 Post Mantle

Thanks for the complements. I love the the 1960 Post set. I have another Mantle which I personally cut from a box of Grape Nuts in 1960. I think what is interesting about the set, which included 5 baseball players (Mantle, Mathews, Killebrew, Kaline, & Drysdale), 2 football (Gifford & Unitas), and 2 basketball (Cousy & Pettit) is that no players of color were included. No Clemente, Mays, Aaron, Chamberlain, Russell, J. Brown, etc.

Out of curiosity, what are some of you thoughts on the 1996/97 Topps Finist Refractors? I think they're pretty sharp looking for sure and although there are tons of reprints out there, they did come before the flood and were issued to commemorate him after his death.

Just wondering, I can't afford the real thing so it seems like the next best.

There's a bunch of Mantle cards you can buy for $20-50 from his playing days, mainly the oddballs and multiplayer cards. The Finest are okay, but I don't see them ever gaining in value.

Oh I was looking at a few of those as well, namely the 58 all-star. But as far as the stuff that's out of reach, it seems the finest is the next best thing.

No mantle collection is complete without this postcard depicting the hall of fame game at doubleday field...presumable 1954 or 1965???
