On the playground in the 1950s and 1960s, a single card of Mickey Mantle was a treasure. Thirty-four Mickey Mantles would have been an abundance of riches! Because these cards are in various grades and are being offered as a collection, they represent an outstanding and relatively affordable opportunity for a collector to acquire a treasure trove of vintage Mickey Mantle cards dating from his playing days. This is a very impressive collection of vintage Mickey Mantle cards with substantial "break value." The SMR value for just eight of the PSA-graded cards (not including the four qualified cards or the three cards graded less than EX) is $1,680. Total: 34 cards. SOLD FOR $3,000
