I get the feeling in terms of price this card is getting ready to pull away from the dock, so to speak. Nothing you havenít seen a million times before, but I was particularly pleased with the centering on this one. This is a long awaited upgrade to my SGC A, which for sentimentality reasons I cannot bear to part with.

I am going through a box of misc. stuff I have accumulated over the years, and I have come across this Mickey Mantle YOO-HOO bottle cap. Is this a vintage bottle cap? What year is it from? I checked eBay, but didn't find a Mantle, and all the 1959 bottle caps I see for other players are of a different style in that YOO HOO appears above the player's head, rather than below the player's image. Many thanks in advance for any help with this bottle cap.

That seems to be 1958, the rarer yellow version.

Last week I finally pulled the trigger and picked up that Mantle.

Not only does this fill a gigantic hole in my set, but this is my FIRST Mantle card in my collection. Happy to finally have it.

Nice pickup. I was tempted to put a bid in. I think you got a great deal on this one.

I have been wishing for this one for so long, I'm not sure that there is anything I know of that could take its place.......There are 2 items that may/may not exist that could be the new whales - 1962 Jello Clemente complete box or 1962 Post Canadian complete box with Clemente. I have never seen either one (I have seen other players in box form for both issues)

While either of them would be incredible finds, I think this Bazooka box will forever be the Jewel in the crown of my Clemente collection. For those who know my collection - that says a lot!

My biggest regret to this day is not picking up a 56 Mantle PSA 4 that, imo, could have easily passed for a 5-6. The seller even held it for me for 2-3 months but I just couldn't commit due to the cost in U.S. funds back then as I was debated if I would be better off purchasing more 52 Topps cards.

How about a 62 Post Cereal Alpha Bits Individual box with Clemente's card on the back? I know where one is!

That box is nowhere near as appealing to me as the thought of a 62 Jello or 62 Post Canadian and not even in the conversation with the Bazooka box.

Well, Howard, at least Fred was kind enough to make you aware of a single-serving Post Cereal Koufax box. You are correct, of course, about the possibility of a 1962 JELL-O box with Roberto being the far greater catch. I don't recall if the early 80's find of '62 JELL-O unfolded boxes included one of Mr. Clemente. I will search the scan I have from David Kathman----YES, Lew Lipset's 1985 SCD ad shows a 1962 JELL-O unfolded Strawberry box with #173 Clemente as the free prize. Mr. Lipset wanted $235 at the time. For reference, he wanted $250 for Henry Aaron.

Since the ad was from 35 years ago, it would be difficult, to say the least, to track down what's become of that blue diamond Roberto Clemente. Ah, forget about it, bro; bask in your happiness of now owning those regal rare Clemente and Mantle 1960 Bazooka boxes. They are special, to be sure, and I'm sure happy for you, bro.

That's an awesome starting point on the 62 Jello box! More than I had to go on for the Bazookas. There is a whole back stroy to the Clemente Alpha bits box that Fred has.

Brian if you would be so kind to send me the scan of the Lipset Ad that would be awesome (hcv123@att.net).

I hope no one decided to cut it along the way to try to get a "10"!

It will take some open time for my son, Howard, but I would be glad to send you a scan of that mouth-drooling advertisement.

Unless the purchaser was a blithering idiot, I would have to think he chose to keep the 1 of 1 1962 JELL-O Clemente unfolded box perfectly intact.

As you rightly responded to my suggestion of having PSA holder your Bazooka boxes, sometimes PSA displays a "what were they thinking??!!??" gross ineptitude in evaluating, grading, AND encapsulating extremely rare and choice gem pieces as Bazooka boxes!

Back in 2008, when I had begun my hobby journalistic journey towards what became my book, I first looked to PSA to grade my Sports Collectors Digest and eventual Never Cheaper By the Dozen cover cards. I called PSA first, but they said they couldn't grade neither my 1962 Apple JELL-O Mickey Mantle unfolded box, nor my 1960 Post Cereal Mick. They would grade my 1954 Stahl-Meyer Franks Mickey Mantle, however. I was in a hurry to make SCD's deadline. So, at the 2008 National in Chicago, Sportscard Guaranty Co. evaluated all 3 items for me. It was costly, but it was worth it, and they did a super job; the cards all looked profoundly beautiful in the SGC holders. I was very, very pleased.

Sorry to wax lyrical but it's a happy memory. Anyways, I will try to get my son's help ASAP, Howard. I don't know if Mr. Lipset is alive to breathe a few words of help to you. The last I knew he resided in Arizona.

All the best to you, sir. -- Brian Powell

Default Mantle Addition

Find myself referring to this thread about once a week, always enjoy seeing fellow 54`ers newest additions. Haven`t added anything to it for some time but did acquire this 1953 Stahl Meyer from another 54`er this week, thanks for working with me Dan Mc. Keep them coming boys, never enough of the Mick !

Murph, I am so happy for you, bro! Wow, what a gorgeous Mantle! Honestly, I fail to grasp why SGC would not give this beauty a numerical grade. Regardless, it has been loved, of course, but the heart of this card, Mickey's perfect smiling face is magnificent! You bought my book, so you know the history and the lore of this baby. You did right well, my friend. I would have loved to have been in the room when you opened up your package, to see your face. I know mine put me on a cardboard cloud 9, from whence I've never come down. The only other card that did that for me was the 1952 Topps Mickey. Thanks for sharing your joy with us! I know you'll be having a great weekend! You look at that card, and you're a kid again.

The continued best to you, buddy. With this prized piece, Mr. Murphy, you've REALLY "escaped the ordinary"!--- Brian Powell

Default The official Mickey Mantle Pickup Thread. All Mick, all the time!

Picked this up at the LCS yesterday. Again, nothing you haven't seen before - but for a raw card I'm very happy. Decent centering, 5-6 range corners, and most importantly fire engine red - and very clean print. Mick at age 27 looks slightly amused...

Story Time:

Ever since I discovered the set, I immediately fell in love with Mickey Mantle's card from Berk Ross. It presented as a beautiful card, at a pretty good price point for a Mantle from 1952. I've been on the hunt for one for quite some time. I missed out on one earlier in the year due to lack of funds at the time, so I made sure to secure one this time around. The iciing on the cake is that it's in good condition and it's raw. While a part of me is tempted to slab it to see the grade, something about a raw card is just so damn appealing! Serious thanks to Charlietheexterminator for answering all of my questions, I think we exchanged close to 30 emails! I'm very happy with this new purchase, and a new centerpiece to my collection
