2021 Topps Mickey Mantle Collection Checklist and Baseball Card Details

Share:

The 2021 Topps Mickey Mantle Collection looks back on the Yankee legend and baseball card icon’s hobby career. More than another set of reprints of old cards, the online-exclusive has some added wrinkles and chase elements.

2021 Topps Mickey Mantle Collection Checklist Overview

The core of the release is a 50-card base set. The majority of these reprint past Topps and Bowman cards released during his playing career. Joining them are a handful of “cards that never were.” These take original Topps designs and fill in gaps where Mantle wasn’t. These include 1951, 1954 and 1955 Topps, years where he was only in Bowman releases.

Bookending the checklist are cards using flagship designs from 2013 to 2021, years where Topps didn’t initially have a deal with Mantle’s estate.

Parallels come in ten levels, all of which combine to land 1:5 packs:

  • Yankee Blue – /199
  • Orange – /150
  • Green – /99
  • Yellow – /75
  • Gold – /50
  • Light Blue – /25
  • Mantle Autograph – /15
  • Seven – /7
  • Red – /5
  • Platinum – 1/1

In addition to these are six Short Prints. For four of these, they’re essentially variations. The other two are unnumbered checklists.

Autographs can also be found, but they’re extremely scarce.

For starters, there are seven total Mantle cut signatures.

A dozen other Yankees stars and legends also have Monumental Autographs, all of which are also numbered to 7. Derek Jeter, Reggie Jackson and Mariano Rivera are among the headliners in the group.

Boxes are available through the Topps website. Each runs $9.99 for five cards.

Although the presentation is different and some elements are fresh, Mantle reprints have been done by Topps in the past. The most notable of these came in 1996 and 1997 when Topps made them one of the cornerstone inserts in their flagship line.
