A very nice card.

 

I am not much of a Mantle guy (Henry Aaron all the way) but what a great addition to your collection.

Aaron is a great player to collect. I feel his cards are undervalued.

Kirk ... I agree about the AAron cards ... but it's been that way for so long.

Nice mantle! I have an sgc authentic too. Any downside to grading it? Trying to decide myself.

Only downside is you cant hold it..but well worth the safety of a holder and the ability to let others hold the card without a chance of damage.

Thought about crossing to PSA but the SGC holder just looks so nice.
