Playing Devil's Advocate to the Devil's Advocate: Kelly's article only mentions 3 HI matchbooks with two different Mantle pictures on them. But we know there are at least 7 variations with the two pictures. His articles also don't mention all of the Country Cookin' Matchbooks with different addresses. So, even Kelly's articles can't be considered the final say in what authentic items are out there.

Like Ben says, "who "really" knows." Once you have it in hand, you'll be the best judge regarding it's authenticity.

Don't forget the red/pink path variation on the yellow and the blue matches that Chris found... Probably more like 10 or more with variations/print errors/defects/colors/size.

The seven I was referring to are the 5 variations with Mick looking over his left shoulder and the 2 variation with Mick looking at you (white background and cream background - ignore the cream background in the center of the attached photo).

I forgot about Chris' blue match variation. That would make it eight.

I guess with Ben's "red/pink path" variation and my "pinkish/dark cream" variation (the center matchbook in the photo), the number is probably limitless.

Speaking of the matchbook with Mick looking over his left shoulder, not meaning to divert from the main topic of the placemat, but does anyone recognize where that photo comes from?


Here's a hint:

Are we still allowed to say “Mick” in 2019? I lose track.

All of the above, even the *cough, cough* 1951 *cough, cough* Wheaties issue, come from the 1952 Wingfield photo
