FANTASY 1972 MICKEY MANTLE "IN-ACTION" CARD

This can be called somewhat of a “Career Capper” of sorts, being that it’ll  be  the last fantasy Mantle card I create imagining if he played to about his age-40 season:

Funny enough this card serves multiple roles: career-capper, MIA MIA, missing in action, but more than anything serves as a reminder to how amazing Mantle was considering he retired at a young age yet put up numbers that made him a legend!
Heck, just two years after this card would have been issued he was elected to the Hall of Fame, cementing his God-like baseball status, and making him arguably the most popular New York Yankee of all-time, especially in the baseball-card world.

  1. Wow! This card, if it was real, would undoubtedly drive up the value of ALL of the 1972 Topps Yankee cards. It's a masterpiece.
