OK, so here is what will be the LAST Mickey Mantle “Fantasy Card” as far as imagining if his career lasted into the 1970’s.
I WILL be creating an “In-Action” card for the ‘72 set as well in the
near future, but as far as creeping further and further into the decade,
this is it:
Even though “The Mick” put together a career for the ages, sure would
have been nice to see what numbers he could have amassed if his body
(and his vices) didn’t betray him.
Nevertheless, the man was (and is) a legend and one of the all-time favorite athletes and celebrities in New York City history!
Anyway, keep an eye out for the “In Action” card in the next week or so!
