In the 1960s, the Topps trading card company boosted sales of baseball cards by including special 'premium' items, featuring star players, in packs of baseball cards. In 1961 and 1962 there were baseball player 'stamps'; in 1963 there were 'peel-offs', following that were coins [1964], rub-offs [1966], decals [1969], etc. Each year Topps did something different. For the 1968 series, baseball's elite players showed up on a set of "Game" cards with which the kids who collected them could actually play a simulated game of baseball. Presented here is a highlight of set - the Mickey Mantle card - which features a head shot of 'the Mick' and a printed signature. In 1968, Mickey's career was winding down; he only scrapes out a single!
