Presented here is a lot of six baseball memorabilia signed by legendary New York Yankees center fielder and Hall of Famer Mickey Mantle. Considered the greatest switch hitter in the history of Major League Baseball, Mantle is the only player in MLB history to hit 150 home runs from both sides of the plate. Mantle played the entirety of his storied 16 season career with the New York Yankees, making 12 World Series appearances and winning the title seven times. Considered one of the most potent offensive threats as a center fielder, the three-time American League MVP led the AL in home runs four times and was the AL RBI leader in 1956, the same year he won the Triple Crown. Mantle was enshrined in Cooperstown on the first ballot in 1974.

The first two items in this presented lot are 8 ½ x 11-inch programs from “Mickey Mantle Day” held on September 18th, 1965 at Yankee Stadium. The paper programs are labeled “MICKEY MANTLE DAY” in black on the top of the program and feature the iconic New York Yankees “Bat in a Hat” logo. A gorgeous illustration of Mantle adorns the front of the program. Mantle signed across his illustration with a blue marker and next to his illustration with a black marker on the second program. The signatures are bold, and the programs feature elements of toning around the borders and come with individual LOA’s from JSA (Z46025) and PSA/DNA (Y08635) for the signatures.

The third item in this lot is an 8 x 10-inch stat sheet signed by Mantle. The sheet lists Mantle’s lifetime statistics, including his stats from his 12 World Series appearances along with his major achievements. Mantle signed his name boldly inside a gold and black box on the statistics sheet with a black marker. The statistics sheet is in good condition and is a stunning commemorative to Mantle’s career.

The fourth item is a copy of an October 1st, 1956 copy of Sports Illustrated featuring Mantle on the cover and signed by the Hall of Famer. The magazine is labeled “SPORTS ILLUSTRATED” in white on the top of the cover, with the date, publisher, and cost on the top right. “WORLD SERIES” and “MICKEY MANTLE HOPE OF THE YANKEES” features prominently in black on the cover next to an image of a smiling Mantle. “Dodgers win” is written in blue ink by an unknown hand across “WORLD SERIES” on the cover. Mantle signed and inscribed “No.7” with a blue fiber-tip marker across the cover. The signature is bold, and the magazine features creasing on the corners, wear on the spine, and a torn address label on the bottom.

The fifth item is a program from “Mickey Mantle Day” at Yankee Stadium held on June 8th, 1969 that featured the retirement of Mantle’s number “7” in front of 60,000 fans, who stayed on to watch the Yankees sweep a double-header against the Chicago White Sox. The 8 x 10-inch program features the number “7” in gray set against a pinstripe backdrop. “A DAY TO REMEMBER!” is labeled in navy across the program. The inside of the program features an image of Mantle in his Yankee uniform, holding his hat in his hands and his glove in his arm, with the opposite page contains a thank you message from the Hall of Famer.
