Title: Oklahoma Today Major Leaguers
Size: 1-11/16″ by 2-3/4″
Number in Set: 20
The 20 cards of baseball players, past and present, from Oklahoma, were printed on the back cover of the Summer 1959 Issue of Oklahoma Today magazine.
The front of the cards feature black and white player images against color backgrounds, of which eight are green, eight are gold, and four are light blue, within a thin black border. Each card was supposed to be cut out by hand, with the printed perforation lines guiding the collector. Under the player’s photo is their name in red capital letters within a white panel.
The backs are unnumbered and show the player’s name, position, team, and league.
PSA has graded 281 cards from this set (64 of those being Mickey Mantle’s card).
The key cards are Hall of Famers Mickey Mantle and Warren Spahn.
A high-grade Mickey Mantle, PSA 8+, is now a $5k+ card.
