I think the King of Post War cards deserves his own pick up/ show off thread. Mantle cards are white hot and I want a place to go to see Mantles exclusively. Post them as you get them, or if you just want to show off...that's great too.
I'll start the thread with this beauty which arrived today.53 is the next 52.

Just picked this one up for an upgrade on my 62 set...absolutely stole it and was shocked I won. I even had room in my cheap bid. Pays to be a night owl, and I am amazed that anyone would end their auctions at such odd times...

Also picked up another 61...another set upgrade...

Ok John,

You've piqued my interest. What did you get the '62 Mantle for? That is one year of his cards that I believe to be undervalued.

Nice card.

Nice eye appeal on the 2.5 Bowman Mantle.

I hope that isn't a pen mark on the Mick's forehead on the 62 ?

Thanks. I haven't owned a 62 in a LONG time.

Twenty plus years ago this beauty was in the showcase of a since closed up shop here in Jacksonville. Cost me $30 and a 1988 Score baseball factory set.

Great cards so far. The '52 is off the charts, Bob. And Dave's initial entry has me still going back to see if I can see an iota of "off-centeredness". And so many other greats ones shown, very nice...
'
Don't know what the technical grade will be but this '51 has some good eye appeal in hand in light of the wrinkle/crease running vertically on the right. It runs about 63.5% of the width of the card (that's a joke but it might be close). Oh well....
My goal as an auctioneer was to have the card in hand look exactly the same as on the screen. I remember adjusting a few settings so they would come out that way when the lucky winner viewed them in hand. This looks as good or better in hand. When I first got into collecting again, as a 30 something, I had a PSA 6 1951 Mantle and eventually sold it when I went backward, time-wise, into pre-war. This card probably has better eye appeal, the crease not withstanding than that first one.

That Mantle rookie looks better than MANY sixes and sevens. Centered and registered. Savvy pickup, sir.

Stonepony 05-11-2016 01:17 PM

Yep, that's a really nice card!

I'm getting dizzy from that autographed 52 mantle. Insane card Bob! Leon that rookie is so fresh and so clean.

Not is the race for the nicest card in this thread. But this is a card I've wanted for a long time.

IT's the club to be in these days!!!! Funny Of all the Cobbs, Ruths I've owned and/or currently own...my last 2 mantle acquisitions put one of the biggest smiles on my face of any of them.

That statement is actually very telling. Remember 80-90s stock guru, Peter Lynch's strategy.... Buy companies that make you happy.
I too get silly when I get a Mantle.

The 51B and 52T are recent additions. I've always felt the 51B was very underappreciated.

why don't all you pre war guys go back to the other side and quit gobbling up all the nice 51 mantles?

sheesh!

Funny how you say that...I been wanting to upgrade my 51 RC...but I decided the PRE-WAR route and stuck to it, it seems for now, unless for some odd reason Leon wants to departs that 51 Mays??? That would make me a happy camper :D

@Bob: Your just killing it bro!!!!
others: Keep up those great additions, even tho I am not partaking, I enjoy others having all the fun

Leon 05-11-2016 04:37 PM

My newest addition is so I can have some eye candy at the local shows I will be doing. It isn't for sale now but eventually will have a price on it which will indicate I want it in my case more than I want to sell it. :) I have always liked his true rookie.

That is a great looking 56!

KCRfan1 05-11-2016 05:08 PM

Mike I love the switch hitter connects!

Gives all of mantles stats and is very undervalued imo.

Big fan of the 54 Dan-Dee. Beautiful card.

ullmandds 05-11-2016 07:13 PM

Love the dandee!! As a kid I had a 57 through 69 mantle as well as many all-star cards and group cards. Truth is I spend most of my time on the vintage side but I am a closet 50s and 60s collector too. I will post some of my other mantles later .

aconte 05-11-2016 08:27 PM

Sweet Dan dee. Great looking 4.5.
