Detailed description on website.
Well after they hung their cleats up, Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays fetched record sums for their baseball cards … sort of. Auctioned in 1989, the original paintings used in the production of Mantle’s 1953 Topps #82 cardboard collectible and Mays’ 1953 Topps #244 keepsake were purchased by Marriott for a combined $209,000!
