My first MANTLE!!!! and some of his friends!!!

 With a swift and hefty bid I was able to knock off the entire All Star portion of the 1960 Topps last series of high number cards.  My first ever Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris cards are now in my possession and I could not be happier!!  The Aaron is my first non 70s Hank card so all in all a great haul for me and my wantlist!  Slowly but surely I am getting this 1960 set knocked out.
I haven't made any trades to further this set along so if you are working on the 1960 set as well and have cards to trade let me know, I have a few hundred extras to trade from so lets make a deal!

Whoa Mickey has some cool friends.

That sound you hear? It's jealousy welling up from deep in my soul.

The friends were so cool and have such an exclusive club, Don Drysdale. Nellie Fox and Luis Aparichio weren't even invited. I do dread the amount of cash i am going to have to lay out in order to acquire the Mickey Mantle base card and the Yaz rookie.

I picked up a fairly decent copy of the 1960 Mantle for about 120. There is one flaw at the top of the card but the rest of it is pretty clean.

Yep and that is why fairly decent condition is probably going to be way out of my reach. 120 is 60% of what i spent on the whole AS lot.
Of course 120 for a nice mantle base card is a great price, I m thinking maybe I can a gem mint Tipton for less than 50 or so....of course that would be a poor in other grading systems.
