Reggie,

That is incredible; both because of the card itself but more so the fact your wife took a sincere interest in learning about the card!

Awesome card, awesome wife!!

That was a super enjoyable read, and I love the photo with Mantle peeking out from behind the box lid. November 2018 can't get here fast enough.

Thanks for sharing!

That's awesome. All I hear from my wife regarding baseball cards is "how much did that one cost?" when she sees a package or notice from the usps.

I heard that! It also turns into a negotiation ahead of the purchase.

If only you knew she would be this cool, you would have asked for the 52 Topps!
