Mickey Mantle Cut Signatures

Randomly inserted into Tier One boxes are are 25 different Mickey Mantle Cut Signature cards. Each is sequentially-numbered uniquely (e.g. "CS-MMxx") and serial-numbered as ones-of-one. We leave it to your judgement as to whether these cards are "true" ones-of-one, or one card that should be serial-numbered to 25.

Since all cards are of Mickey Mantle, for brevity's sake, we are not listing the entire checklist.
