2010 Topps 1962 Mickey Mantle Reprint Relic

Back in the days of elementary and middle school, I used to collect baseball cards.  It was the big thing where you would take some to school and trade, or meet up with cousins and friends to trade or see who has what.  It wasn’t for monetary gain, you didn’t necessarily care about the condition of the cards, the big thing was to have your favorite player(s) or try and collect every player for your favorite team.

Well now 15 years later, for whatever reason I’ve started buying a pack of cards randomly when I go to the store, and with more knowledge of properly taking care of things, keeping them in “mint” condition, I would say I’m more of a proper collector now.  Although my knowledge is limited right now as to what cards are worth keeping, which are good investments, I do come across a card once in awhile that I know should be worth something, the question is what is themickeymantel value.  I have come across one such card, one that is apparently rare enough that asking friends online, no one has any knowledge of it, and its been hard finding any info on it anywhere online up to this point.

The card in question comes from the Topps 2010 Series 2.  It is serial numbered up to 62 (with mine being 38/62) and numbered as MMR-1 on the back.  It also has a piece of a game used bat, showing through a 62 cut in the card.  I did read that the chance of getting the card is 1:70,000.  If anyone knows anything about this card or has any additional information, feel free to contact me or comment below.
