I'll just go ahead and get this one out of the way before someone else beats me to it :

I sold this a while back, there are 4 baseball stars in the set: Ruth, Mays, Koufax and the Mick (only Ruth can be found in the uncoated variety as well).

Here's one of mine that I don't believe has been shown





Mantle Quiz:

Altho this is not a card, it's a pose of Mantle that I have never seen anywhere else before. Can anyone identify where this is taken from?

It is from the back cover of Major League Baseball Digest from 1953. Robin Roberts is on the front cover

You are exactly right!

Here's the cover:




I think it is a terrific pic (or painting) of Mick & one I don't recall ever seeing anywhere else!

I just posted this in the 1956 card thread, but it is worth repeating here ...

On Mantle's 1956 Topps card, the first column of fans on the far left in the stands is repeated as the last column of fans on the right. Notice the guy with the suit and tie on, and the fellow with the horizontal stripe on his shirt leaning to his left.

Wow, very good catch. The 'pasted' fans look like Sox rooters, turning away and snubbing poor Mick.

Nah Steve, the stripe shirt guy is just "getting in Mick's ear" (literally). Probably yelling "noonan", or something not printable.

Either that, or they're just the first group to notice the giant Mantle head floating in the outfield.
