The Mick


That's a 1998 Fleer Tradition Mickey Mantle. I'm not a Yankees fan and I don't collect Mantle but isn't it a gorgeous card? This came my way as a 'bonus' from an eBay dealer who botched an order. He made good on the cards I'd paid for and included a couple of extras which I appreciated. Nothing valuable but nice cards nonetheless.

I scanned this one and was saving it for when I had nothing else ready to go. I'm in the middle of a couple of projects and I'm behind in my scanning (the past weekend's TriStar show didn't help me catch up) so tonite is Mickey Mantle Night here at the ol' 5 Tool blog.

Fleer sure packed a lot of tiny type onto the back of this one.
