Among his appearances were the 1938 and 1945 grand finals in which the Blues respectively defeated Collingwood and South Melbourne. In the former match he in effect played as a tagger, on Magpie rover Alby Pannam, while in the latter he played well and kicked 3 goals as first rover.

After retiring as a player Mick Price spent time as coach of Carlton's reserves, overseeing premiership triumphs in 1951 and 1953.
