I've seen those before. Not sure they aren't old repacks, but I wouldn't expect to find a Mantle in there.

And as Ted said this and other years in similar Fun Packs were in a reputable auction

I bought this years ago thinking it must be a fake but wondering why someone putting together a fake would include so many mistakes. But then again, the Topps 1973 Reprint set ( 1953) of 8 has 3 mistakes in it

Al's most likely got a Topps mockup piece, kludged together by Len Brown's NPD guys. From what I've been finding for every green lit project at Topps, nine got zapped-although some would end up repurposed.

That Frank Thomas pack is definitely aftermarket. Topps had no qualms selling off overstock in bulk but I believe the example above is just a fantasy piece designed for eBay and similar environs.

Maybe if the Phillies had Foster back in the late 70s, they wouldn’t have lost the NLCS three years in a row.
