1951 Bowman Mantle from cut junk era commons
 
I'm going to be spending my rainy weekend on a '33 Ruth, but I put the finishing touches on this one first. Approximately 28"x18".

Hi Nate...
I once had the exact amount of time and the exact number of cards used for each piece. Once I started working several pieces at once, I stopped tracking those stats. When I was tracking, the average time was around 40-45 hours. This Mantle took a little longer than that.

Really appreciate it, Graig. Working on that Dan Dee Mantle gave me the itch to complete some of the unfinished Mantles I have had going for awhile. Hopefully I can get enough pieces done by next fall to make some sort of show a reality!

Thank you! This was not a commission, just something I have been working on a little bit at a time over the past year. It is available. If interested, please shoot me an inbox or email (timcarrollart@yahoo.com).
