Top 100 Cards of My Collection #36 2007 Topps Sterling Mickey Mantle Career Stats Relics Six

Mickey Mantle makes his countdown debut here at #36 with a gorgeous 6 piece relic card from Topps Sterling. Any time you can get a game used card of Mickey Mantle, it's awesome, but a 6 piece relic card? Amazing. The card commemorates Mantle's Career World Series home runs by spelling out 18 WS HR (18 World Series Home Runs) an amazing feat by one of the greatest players of all time. It contains three bat pieces, two grey material pieces, and a swatch featuring a Yankee pinstripe, which is definitely a favorite of mine when it comes to game used of Yankee greats. Also, the overall design of the card is nice, you can definitely tell it comes from a higher end product.  The card is also numbered to only 10 copies (mine is 5 of 10). All the right combinations for my 36th favorite card in my collection.
