Description

Mantle-ites enjoy this pairing of vintage publications. Ranking among the more important periodicals to feature “The Mick”, these well-kept editions deliver the goods with important subject matter and excellent preservation.

 

First up is an 8/51 Baseball Magazine with Mantle front cover photo from his rookie season. Mantle looks young, determined and capable in a black and white batting pose image. This clean and glossy copy radiates quality with sharp colors/graphics, a tight solid spine and desirable gloss to rate as (EX).


Next comes an equally attractive 4/13/62 edition of Life (EX) with Liz Taylor and Dick Burton on the cover depicted as Cleopatra and Marc Antony. Tucked in next to a full page Post Cereal ad featuring "Whitey" Ford in a two-card perforated panel insert representing Post’s 1962 baseball card series with #5 Mickey on one side and #6 Roger Maris on the other. This gorgeous panel shows in nearly original condition with only minor corner wear to rate as (NM).
