After doing her research, she did say to me: "I know the reason you like the 1951 Bowman Mantle over the 1952 Topps: It is because the 1951 Bowman is his real rookie card and you're into rookie cards."

She knows me too well and she is right. I've always been into actual rookie cards. There is something about that "first card" I've always liked. Don't get me wrong, that 1952 Topps is way up on my want list. Maybe right after the 1951 Bowman Willie Mays card.
