|Mickey Mantle burst onto the Major League Baseball scene in 1951 as New York Yankees baseball great Joe DiMaggio ended his career. Mantle established himself as one of the game’s best players and sluggers as a New York Yankees center fielder and first baseman from 1951 through 1968. In 1952, his first full season with the Yankees, Mantle’s batting percentage was the second highest in the American League, and he had 23 home runs, 87 runs batted in and 94 runs scored. He won the Triple Crown in 1956, leading the major leagues in batting average, home runs and runs batted in. Mantle was plagued by injuries throughout his 18-year career, but he had 30 home runs and 89 RBIs in the 1962 season even though he missed 39 games, and he finished second in batting average and won the most valuable player award. Mantle was injured again in 1963 and played in only 65 games, but he had a .314 batting average. The 1963 Topps Mickey Mantle New York Yankees #200 baseball card pays tribute to this legendary baseball player, nicknamed "The Commerce Comet" and "The Mick." The front of the Topps baseball card depicts a head shot of Mantle with Yankee stadium in the background, as well as Mantle in an at-bat stance in a bottom right corner inset. The back of the Topps card features his complete Major League batting record with a block of text above the statistics that notes that Mantle ranks seventh among the all-time home run hitters and that he has won three American League Most Valuable Players awards. Graphics next to the text illustrate the fact that Mantle hit 14 World Series homers. Mickey Mantle was one of the greatest switch-hitters to play baseball. He hit some of the longest home runs in Major League history, including a ball he hit in 1960 that was estimated to have traveled 643 feet. At the end of his career, he had hit 536 home runs, batted in 1,509 runs on 2,415 hits and had 10 out of 18 seasons when his batting average was .300 or better. Mantle appeared in 12 World Series including 7 championships, and his World Series statistics are records for each category: 18 home runs, 40 runs batted in, 26 extra-base hits, 42 runs, 43 walks and 123 total bases. His record of 18 World Series home runs, hit between 1952 and 1964, is considered to be an unbreakable record. Mickey Mantle was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1974 and elected to the Major League Baseball All-Century Team in 1999.|

Classic Card Design
Here we have a beautiful card design from the 1960's .. the 1963 Topps Baseball set. Card #200 Mickey Mantle features a nice portrait of Mickey Mantle and a small inset picture of him in a batting stance. These cards tend to have several things to look out for: 1. Chipping along the green borders on the bottom. 2. Most cards are "off-center." From what I have seen only about 1 in 10 is truly centered top to bottom & side to side. "Centered" cards will bring premiums $$. Generally you can pay less for an "off-centered" card then for one that is "centered." Be sure your getting a good value. On the other hand, If you find a "centered" card ... be ready to compete for it! It is very desirable! Mickey Mantle is a figure from baseball history whose name is a household name! An iconic sportsman from the 1950-60's to be revered for all time. Happy Bidding!

I haven't fondled a reprint card before and spent a few bucks on this to compare a reprint to real cards. The printing is very high quality and looks better than the originals. The card stock feel is definitely not the same type of cardboard. A thick photo copy doesn't have the same layering as cardboard. This card helped me be a better consumer.

Vintage in good condition
I like this Mickey Mantle card. I see a couple straight line dings that doesn't detract from overall appeal. I recommend any vintage card in good condition to collect. Value was right. Enjoy collecting.
