Date or bed? Big difference, imo.

Ummm....no, I don't think that a '52 Mick is just 'slightly hotter' than any of his other cards. And it seems like the crowd has come to the same conclusion based on how much they would pay for one.

Not a direct corollary, but you can either own the best movie (according to the American Film Institute) ever made (#1), or the next 25 greatest from their list (#2-26). What would you do? Better yet, since a lot of people have a different film topping their personal list of best flicks ever, you can choose any one listed to own by its lonesome, or opt for the remaining 25 movies. I'd find much more enjoyment having the large group of different movies to watch, even if I had to forgo ever playing that one great film.

1. Citizen Kane
2. The Godfather
3. Casablanca
4. Raging Bull
5. Singin' In The Rain
6. Gone With The Wind
7. Lawrence Of Arabia
8. Schindler's List
9. Vertigo
10. The Wizard Of Oz
11. City Lights
12. The Searchers
13. Star Wars
14. Psycho
15. 2001: A Space Odyssey
16. Sunset Boulevard
17. The Graduate
18. The General
19. On The Waterfront
20. It's A Wonderful Life
21. Chinatown
22. Some Like It Hot
23. The Grapes Of Wrath
24. E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial
25. To Kill A Mockingbird
26. Mr. Smith Goes To Washington


Value aside, I'd rather be able to adore 25 separate (and valuable in their own right) Mantle cards than be stuck married to that one piece of arrogant cardboard for eternity!!! (Uh oh...think I wandered off into some personal issues there for a moment. )
How is Blame It on Rio not on this list?



I will take the 1952 Mantle. I already own the other Mantles I really like. Now, if you offer me a 1952 Mantle or a Baltimore News Ruth...

I don't think it is hot at all. I think it is an ugly girl that others think is hot. Slightly hotter is just a concession to others like you. 1951 Bowman and 1953 Bowman are hot not 1952 Topps.

I think I would Have to Agree

Blame it on Rio should be on the list for the Wholesome Entertainment that it provided and taught many valuable life lessons
