1994 Topps Mickey Mantle


For those who actually read this blog, you know that I've been filling in the missing Mantles from 1971 -1995. Topps has created quite a few Mantle Cards That Never Were. Including cards that had no real reason to exist, specifically the cards of Mickey Mantle that were issued well after he retired. In 2006, more than 10 years after The Mick passed on, Topps began issuing a Mantle card in every set, number 7. Since then they have also issued cards that they missed including a 1970 Walmart only, mini cards from 1975 and 1987 plus the years 1996-2005. 

This year, no Mickey Mantle card. No number 7 card. What gives? Do they need to renegotiate with his estate? Did they decide that this was a silly endeavor suited more for a time-wasting blogger than a multi-billion dollar industry? I don't know, but I will tell you this: If it doesn't materialize by the series 2 release date (Last estimate June 11th), look for it here.

  1. I'm sorry to say this but this '94 Topps Mantle card does not look good to me at all. This looks like a step back after doing such a great job with your other cards.

    What bothers me are the lack of relationship between the color of the photo with the borders of the '94 Topps card. Your other cards matched.

    Another thing that bugs me is the fact this picture is fairly common while much of your other Mantle cards contain typically unique pictures of the The Mick. This picture was even used as the basis for one of the covers of the short lived Mickey Mantle Story comic book released in the 90's.

    Kudos for your other Mantle cards. You managed to make a card based from the 1990 Topps set actually look good!
