2012 Topps ‘Career Day’ Subset – Card #22 – Mickey Mantle, New York Yankees
I am working on this set because I find it to be the most appealing of the subsets issued by Topps in 2012.
The cards feature bold colors, great images, and a unique horizontal design.
I especially like the ‘Career Day’ theme as it pays homage to some of the greatest individual performances of baseball’s elite players.
Card #22 – Mickey Mantle, New York Yankees
The Career Day – August 19, 1962. In a 21-7 rout of the Oakland Athletics, Mickey Mantle put on quite a show. Going 3-for-4, Mantle connected for a single, a double, and a Grand Slam. On the day, Mantle collected 7 RBI, scored 3 runs, and stole 2 bases.
Progress – 22/25
