  1. I have a Mickey Mantle Commemorative Set Card #2 of 19, #311, printed by 1996 Topps Company Inc, with a gold stamp with the dates 1931 -1995, Topps Mickey Mantle with his face printed on the left top corner of the card, how much is this worth? I have looked at numerous websites and still have no answer to this question. If you could help me out that would me awesome! Thank you in advance and I look forward in hearing from you soon. Sincerely, Gina Clark

  2. Unfortunately, not much. They can be found for under $5.
