‘Mantle Monday’ continues through Sept. 11

Panini America is in the midst of using its Panini Eternal on-demand trading card platform to honor the legendary Mickey Mantle with a weekly initiative that just might make baseball fans and collectors start embracing a case of the Mondays. It’s called “Mantle Monday,” and every Monday through Sept. 11, Panini Eternal will launch a new card honoring a Mick milestone.

The first card in the series looked back at Mantle’s big-league debut in 1951. Each card in the Mantle Monday series will be available to order for just one week and will feature a base Gray version as well as a Blue version (numbered to just seven) and a Black version (numbered to only one).
