The most memorable 1952 Mickey Mantle

Someone took a 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle, and cut out Mickey Mantle’s photo from the background. This is how cards should be. Real interaction with the card.

Rather funny to see this card slabbed. Really, at this point are we really concerned about condition? This card would be so much cooler to let it roam free. How many 1952 Mickey Mantles can you say that you just casually have sitting on your desk?

Sure, the thing sold for $7,201 (with $5.95 shipping), but it only sold for that much for what it is. Not for any of the condition. Heck, even the back is torn to shreds.

Just looking at the back of this card, it’s funny to think someone paid $7,201 for this card back.

And what’s up with the $5.95 shipping? If I’m paying $7,201 for something. I kinda want the shipping to be more than your standard USPS envelope.

For that matter, let’s archive the eBay auction for posterity, so we can see all the details like the item description.

I don’t know how much value the bidding history has, but let’s keep a record of that, too.
