I was thinking last night as I was going thru my Mantle cards how I was glad his last card was in 1969. I would have hated to see him on the early seventy topps cards kind of how I dislike the Mays stuff from those years. He is well past his prime and the polyester uniforms of that era dont look right on the Say Hey Kid!
That got me thinking about cards I wish didnt exisit. The big ones for me are any card that has Johnny Unitas out of a Baltimore Colt uniform. Dont look right, will never look right!
Jackie Robinson was actually traded to the Giants after 1956, he refused to go. I am very glad that didnt happen cause that would have meant a 1957 Topps card of him on the New York Giants.
Think that would have been ok if there wernt about 40 of them! Not sure what they were thinking there. How dissapointing would have been as a kid to open a pack of cards which had about 1 to 5 in a pack those days and get three umpire cards!
