“Let me see if I got this right. You buy low grade

beat up cards and feature them on your blog.

That’s awesome. Totally different than all the

other blogs I have seen featuring the nicest cards.”


1966 Topps
Mickey Mantle

It may sound dumb, but I have four of these cards. Of the four, three are in pretty bad shape. This one is the worst of the bunch.

So why do I have four?

Lately while looking through eBay, I've adopted a certain philosophy toward those players I consider superstars; Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays, Hank Aaron, Roberto Clemente and Jackie Robinson.

I try to find regular issue Mantle and Robinson cards, during their playing days, for under $40. I also look for Mays, Aaron and Clemente cards for under $5. Now keep in mind condition isn't that important to me. I think these cards will always hold their value regardless of condition.

And believe it or not, I am occasionally successful in my quest.

I have been successful at least a few times when it comes to the 1966 Topps Mickey Mantle.
