Jamie and Bryan......I really appreciate your kind words regarding my Mantle.
Credit really goes to my Mom and Aunt, who saved all my "goodies" from my youth when I was away in the Air Force.

Ryan......as you said in your opening statement......" Picking a top 3 is tough..... ". So, if you don't mind, I am adding
these two "gems" to my above 3-card display.


This UZIT completes my 13-card run of this McGraw. This card is unique (until another McGraw/UZIT is discovered).






And, favorite Cobb.....which (near) completes my AMERICAN BEAUTY 460 run (72 of 74 cards)

Hi Pete

That diagonal "scar" from Mickey's left ear (on down) is not a crease, but a surface scratch.

And, I don't know what caused it. All my other 1952 TOPPS cards which I originally collected (Spring 1952 to Fall 1952) average VgEx to Ex.

Furthermore, there is a Net54 member whose original Mantle has the same "scratch". Perhaps, if he is reading this, he will post his Mantle here.

Great picks. I've never seen any of these. Not a corner of the market I am familiar with.

Irv is the Net54 member I referred to in the prior response to you. Check-out Post #28 in this thread.... http://www.net54baseball.com/showthr...2+topps+mantle

The "surface scratch" on his 1952T Mantle is remarkably similar to the one on my Mantle card.

Mine changes by the hour!

Before I post them, let me say that I used to own the 52' Topps Mantle in my 20s. I was too busy working, getting drunk and chasing girls, and the card just sat there collecting dust. Eventually I sold it. I have attached it below.

My top 3 right now can be seen below the Mantle. I am always open to trading for a 1951 Bowman Mantle.

There is really some great eye candy in this thread. My guess is that most of us could have picked a few others that are our favorites at any given time. For favorite poses this one comes to mind.

Love the M110 cabinets. Extremely rare and still somewhat affordable.

Kind of like picking favorite kids here:

Today I'll go with...

1. D381 Fleischmann Cobb, impossibly rare card from the set, took years to land this one!

2. 1907 Detroit seemless Cobb PC RC , one of rarest and earliest cards of Ty

3. C.1925-26 RPPC of Ruth,wife, Fred Merkle and Brother Matthias sitting in new car that I believe was a gift from Ruth outside of St. Marys school.

How about 3 more faves? They are kind of like a Lay's potato chip in a card sort of way.
