Both cards seller listed as "good" I'd call Mike EX only has one minor crease on a corner centering is typical of the set but pretty good. Mickey on the other hand yep he's "good" creases lots of corner/edge ware visibly a vintage card. Waiting on two cards to complete that set. Thought I had completed it a few months back but was 4 cards short.
Completes a Team Set from 1974!

2010 Topps Baseball Million Cards Give-A-Way Code Cards:
TMC-21 though TMC-30 for some odd reason 4 of them have blue sharpie across the code, I guess the original owner would mark off the code once they entered them. Kind of stinks for the second hand owner. but whatever. I do want to get the rest of these cards. Actually I have an art project in mind for these so I will need multiples of each card eventually.
OH I almost forgot the seller used some 1988 Donruss Diamond King puzzle pieces for end protectors in the team bag. So from the 1988 Donruss Baseball Diamond King: Stan Musial Puzzle Card 43-45 and Card 46-48
