Question about a '69 Topps Mantle

Question about a '69 Topps Mantle
I just received this card. It's super thin. Are all the '69 Topps pretty thin? Everything else about it looks great. With the card being so thin, I am worried it's not authentic. Most vintage I have has thick card stock. this is my first '69 though. Thanks in advance.

Very likely its a magazine reprint.

I have been gone a long time, my ideas on collecting have changed as I have aged. Will only be here Off and On because things are different. Not going to do much Trading but will offer some items For Sale. As Always, Have FUN !...Mel

How can I tell if it's a magazine reprint? I'll try to post some pics.
Here's front and back pics.

An issued 69 card should be on Grey Brown cardboard stock I believe.

I've got that card and it looks spot on to me. I'll post scans in a bit. The '69s are a bit thin.

Interested in EX-MT or better pre-'56 Cardinals, '53 Bowman Color & '74-'78 Topps.

The more I compare, the more I think it's good. Thanks for the insight. It's in great shape. Do you it would grade well?

My opinion, maybe a 5 to 5.5.

Here's mine. I don't have a back scan handy but I know it has a white background like yours.

Edit: I checked it, the back is just like yours.
