OK, so I guess I wasn’t completely done with my “fantasy” Mickey Mantle cards, since I wanted to create an action card for him in the set like some of those other awesome Yankee cards: White, Munson, Woods, McDaniel, etc.
So this is what I came up with and I think it came out really well:
I tried as hard as possible to get the same feel as those other cards I
mentioned above, since they are all some of my favorites, and I feel
some of the best action cards Topps ever produced (again, leading to the
mystery of the horrid “action” cards the following few years).
Anyway, would have been special to have Mantle play into the 1970’s,
padding those career numbers and giving us some more cards to hunt down
