His vintage cards from his playing days are among the most sought after in their respective sets. Even when ranked alongside the many Yankee greats, Mickey Mantle is the king of the hobby world.

The 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle is probably the most famous baseball card released since the end of WWII. Other than the the T206 Honus Wagner, it's probably the most famous card of all-time. Vintage Mickey Mantle cards, not just his early ones, rank among the top cards of every set they're in. In some instances, veteran Mantles outsell rookies of Hall of Famers within the same set.

However, even modern base cards and standard inserts command attention.

  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
