Not really a fair question for me as I have always been a baseball guy, but there is just something iconic about that 52 Mantle. It always represented the "holy grail" to me when I was collecting.

I remember a guy had one at a local mall during a card show when I was about 12 or so, and it was awe inspiring. He was asking $10,000 for it (meaning he obviously was just showing it off).

... what TimGeezy said ...

But in all honesty, not a fair poll, more fair would be 1968 Nolan Ryan vs 1986 Michael Jordan, etc.
Then you would have a comparison of a generation who watched both players, plus value wise it's a little closer, as Mantle's card can be worth about $30000 to $50000. Just my opinion.

A 1952 Topps Mantle is in a class of its own.

-Assuming both cards had equivalent monetary value, the Mantle.

generally the Mantle sells better, so if not assuming the above i'd take the Mantle either way. If i'm a jordan fan, sell the mantle and buy a few Jordan RCs.

lobo_hacker, who'd rather just have the disposable cash

I don't care about basketball at all so I'd rather have the Mantle than 5 Jordan rookies

if just plain value than clearly it's mantle, but i obviously never saw mantle play, however i grew up when jordan was at his best and i would be glued to the TV watching him dominate on a nightly basis, so without $$$$ being involved, i'd take jordan.

I am a basketball guy all the way, and have never liked baseball, and I would choose the 52 Mantle over the 86 Jordan.

OOOOOH!!!!! Scan or it didnt happen! LOL.

Honestly, the 52 Topps Mantle is hands down THE card outside of the T206 Wagner. The MJ is up there, but I dont think it will be as iconic as the Mantle.
