    Question Mantle Card and uniform swatch set?

    Hey all, I'm hoping to get a little feedback on a recent pull of mine. I bought on of those boxes of cards where they pack up several different brands of packs of cards together with card/jersey swatch set. I've pulled a roger clemens in the past, but this time I got a Mickey Mantle card/swatch set! Question is, do you think I should get it authenticated/slabbed? I'm kinda at a loss as to what to do with it. E-Bay? Trade? I dunno... I've attempted to add a photo... hope its there. Any feedback appreciated!

    No, it's not worth getting graded. Here's a similar one that sold for $26. http://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-SPOR...item589bdec804

    There are a couple more on ebay, and the sellers are asking $45-$50.

    They're still hacking up jerseys and gluing 'em onto cards? How sad.

    I have a Roberto Alomar like that too (can't quite remember off the top of my head if it's from the same company), I always question its authenticity.

    I remember this set from a few years back, it was all Mantle with a few "vintage" cards scattered throughout hobby boxes. I bought a few packs, didn't get anything tremendous. In one of the packs was a 1977 Lou Brock.
