I need to know how much a 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle baseball card would have been worth around 1979. I know a recent card sold around $275,000, but I couldn't even begin to guess its worth three decades ago. Any help/information is appreciated! Also, if anyone has fond stories of trading cards as a child/teen I'd love to hear.

I'll probably be gone most of the day, so thank you ahead of time!

My husband, a former collector/trader, thinks maybe 6 or 7 hundred. He said it is difficult to know for certain because a grading system did not exist at that time to gauge quality and price.

Thanks Gehanna! I might fudge the number up a bit for the story, but that's about what I thought.
