    1999-2010 Upper Deck "A Piece of History - 500 Home Run Club" Game Used Bat Near Set (21/23). In the late 1990's the trend of presenting a sample of a game used jersey or bat had begun that would drastically change the hobby. The idea allowed mainstream collector ownership of a piece of baseball history. The concept is still going strong with entire sets sharing this trend as collectors passionately pursue a swatch of jersey or bat. "A Piece of History - 500 Home Run Club" debuted in 1999 with a subject roster of 15, all members of the elite 500 Home Run Club. Collectively, 14,520 baseballs have landed into the stands thanks to these gifted athletes. Not only was this a first for Upper Deck, it remains one of their best. As a new member earned entry, a card was produced. Which is why this presentation is 11 years and various Upper Deck brands in the making. With the exception of Babe Ruth, there were only 350 bat cards of each player produced. Although pulled from packs and are factory cut, Aaron and Robinson have been deemed "min. size not met." Missing Sheffield and Ruth for completion. Includes: Graded - PSA Gem MT 10: 4 cards, Reggie Jackson, Willie Mays, Eddie Murray and Rafael Palmeiro; PSA Mint 9: 4 cards, Ken Griffey, Jr., Willie McCovey, Mel Ott and Sammy Sosa; PSA NM-MT 8: 10 cards, Ernie Banks, Jimmie Foxx, Harmon Killebrew, Eddie Mathews, Mark McGwire, Manny Ramirez, Mike Schmidt, Frank Thomas, Jim Thome and Ted Williams; PSA NM 7: 1 card, Mickey Mantle. Ungraded - Hank Aaron and Frank Robinson.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
