    Mickey Mantle Find from long ago

    With all the ice / snow problems we are having in Texas, I had some extra time to dig into some boxes from long past. My father in law was a minister and about twice a year he would go to a congregation in a different town or state to hold a week long gospel meeting. One of the towns he visited was Joplin, MO. and the local church who was having the meeting put him up in a Holiday Inn.

    He was a big Yankee fan and this was not just any Holiday Inn! It was one owned in part by Mickey Mantle. My father in law was not a smoker but he couldn't pass up this matchbox and upon his death it came my way.



    I am grateful to have it as part of my collection and I think it is pretty cool.

    Thanks for taking a look.

    On smaller trades I use PWE but will use bubble mailer if you ask.
    Slow trader - be patient. I love trading but do not have enough time.
