500 Home Run Club Bat Card - Mickey Mantle

One of my 2010 Card Collecting goals is to get a bat card of every member of the 500 Home Run Club. I can now check Mickey Mantle off my list, as I got this recent eBay purchase in the mail today. The card is from the 2001 Upper Deck Hall of Famers Game Bat insert set. I love this set and I absolutly love this card. I love the photo, which I believe is commemorating Mickey's 1956 Triple Crown season, hence the crown and the 3 bats (you can see the begining of his .353 batting average on the top bat). Just a great card!

Here is my list. I now have 14 of 24. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hank Aaron 755
