'Mantle Monday' continues through Sept. 11

"Mantle Monday" is offered by Panini America, which includes trading cards highlighting milestones in Mickey Mantle's storied career.

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). A complete release schedule is listed below.
