1952 Topps Mickey Mantle Rookie Card!

Mickey's career has been a huge legacy, surviving through all the injuries and still having a fabulous career. His career batting average was .298 and he hit 536 home runs, not as lengthy as Ruth, Aaron, or Mays, but still prolific. This card has been enormously popular with collectors, and they sell for a lot of $. Some people call this card the King of post war cards even! It sold for 275,000 one time, graded 10 gem mint condition!

So there you have it, Mickey Mantle gets the nod at #2, and #3 is coming soon to drewscards. Leave your comments in this post and we can get #3 done. Please Vote on this and see ya!

  1. I'll move up to my ERA and say 1989 Upper Deck card #1 Ken Griffey Jr.

    I pulled one from a pack only to have it stolen when I was a kid.

  2. I'd rather go super old-school with the Cracker Jack Shoeless Joe Jackson.
