To me, that card is the next greatest thing from the 52 Topps Mantle.
I concur. In 1953, Topps used extraordinary artwork instead of photographs. The Mantle is simply stunning. In 1992, the Marriott corporation bought the original Mantle art for $121,000. When I learned of the sale, I commissioned the original artist, Gerry Dvorak, to paint me another one!
