Since we're on a vintage wave ride of Mickey Mantle cards lately, here are a few cards I would like to revisit with you all. In 2006 Topps released a 1952 style set that included a new crop of rookie cards, short prints and of course our beloved Mickey Mantle card in several different color variations. Topps also released another set in 2007, like the 2006 release, but with a dark blue looking background on "The Mick" 52' card. If you can't afford to plop down $5000 or more for a weathered original 1952 card of Mantle, then you have other options at a much more affordable route. Another great set of Mantles worth checking out are the 1996 Topps version as well.
