Mickey Mantle 2009 Topps Baseball Card – Mantle Turning Two??

Mickey Mantle 2009 Topps Baseball Card – Mantle Turning Two??

I scooped this card during a recent shopping adventure on Sportlots.com.

I had seen it many times before, both on the web and at card shows, but I never really felt like I needed it for my collection.

But on Sportlots.com, where many cards can be had for as little as $0.18 each, there is a little less thought about the investment so I tend to just go after stuff that I think would make for a neat addition to my collection.

And now that the card has arrived, it makes me wonder what Mantle was doing in this picture. 

VINTAGE MANTLE

Obviously he is in the infield.  And he appears to be throwing to another base.  But, Mantle was an ouyfielder… 

I just don’t get it.

Does anyone out there have more information about this picture and what it may actually be that we’re seeing? 

I’m puzzled and would love a little more clarity!!!

Thanks.
