No player in baseball history has slugged as many World Series home runs as the inimitable Mickey Mantle. Mantle appeared in 12 World Series during his Yankee career, winning seven as the Bronx Bombers totally dominated Major League Baseball during the 1950’s and 1960’s. “The Commerce Comet” crushed 18 round-trippers in the Fall Classic, with only Babe Ruth (15 World Series home runs) anywhere near Mantle’s career total.

Presented here is a collection of tickets from every World Series game in which Mantle hit a home run. Mantle hit his first World Series home run in Game 6 of the 1952 Series, when he was only 20 years old. He came to bat in the top of the eighth inning against Billy Loes of the Dodgers, and promptly uncorked a solo home run to deep left center for what would ultimately be the game winning run. The Yankees went on to win 3-2, and the legend of “The Mick” was born. The ticket stub for Game 6 has been encapsulated and authenticated by PSA/DNA (22286061) and graded an EX 5.
