A new book written by an avid collector of Mickey Mantle baseball cards has arrived. “The Mickey Mantle Card Collector’s Guide” is a 256-page paperback volume written by avid collector Bill Wilen.
The book features full-color reproductions of both the front and back of every Mantle card issued between 1951 and 1969, all of which are presented in actual size, and contains more than 420 images overall. Book values and recent auction results are provided for every card.
The book also includes 80 pages of other Mantle print memorabilia, including postcards, buttons, record albums, coins, and posters. The book’s foreward has been written by Mantle’s two surviving sons, David and Danny Mantle.
Extensive auction and private sale results for both top-quality and lower grade cards is included. Chapters feature the full story behind the cards and the series in which they appear for Topps, Bowman and dozens of other regional, food, test issue and even internationally produced cards.
