I am behind on the updates for my 1964 Topps Giants set. I need to catch up a bit over the next few weeks. For tonight, I am just going to post one of the cards from the set that I have added to my collection in the two months since I last updated this project.
It's a pretty important card.
Needless to say, I was pretty excited about adding the Mickey Mantle card from the set. There are 60 cards in the Topps Giants set and a handful of the cards are going to take up the majority of time and money to track down. This Mantle was one of those cards.
There are so many Topps Giants cards that talk about players' Minor League careers on the back of the card. Even the players who had been around for a while in 1964. Mantle just gets a long write-up about all his Postseason accomplishments. Wish a few more of the card backs in this set had followed this formula. Pick something the player did well and talk about it on the card.
I did alright here.
Now, about that Koufax.
Updated checklist. 22 out of the 60 cards.
