Ebay Pickup - 1959 Topps Mickey Mantle All Star
I have seen this card go for around $100 - $125, but I had been watching a couple that were in worse shape than this one that were Buy it Now for $55 and $57. I saw this one, which was listed as an auction, and caught it with about an hour to go. I bid my maximum bid at the $55 that I had almost been willing to spend on the BIN one and rode out the auction to win it at $42.00 shipped. AWESOME!
So, this was the biggest remaining piece that I needed for the set. I still have a good many All Star/High Numbers to get, but none are as prestigious as this card. Mantle cards always seem to carry a premium. Even though I am in no way a Yankee fan, I still can appreciate the gravity of adding a new Mantle to my collection.
This leaves me needing 98 cards to complete the set.
