Presented is a Mickey Mantle original grammar school photograph. The 2¼ x 3½-inch black and white portrait captures the youthful boy, recognizable even at that age as a charming character, in a dark open-collared shirt with light t-shirt, a broad smile and slicked-down hair with a part on the left. The edges of the photo are rounded with a few “chips” across the bottom, but the primary image is clear and free of defects. The boy from Commerce, Oklahoma attended Commerce Middle School and then graduated from Commerce High School in June, 1949. Even after he became the star centerfielder of the New York Yankees, Mantle returned to Commerce with his wife and family for decades until just prior to his death in 1995. The “Home of the Tigers” still honors their most famous alumnus, where a bronze Mickey Mantle stands beyond the center field fence of the Commerce High School baseball field, named Mickey Mantle Field. Perched atop a granite base inside a miniature baseball diamond, the Hall of Fame baseball player stands nine feet tall and weighs over a ton. "The Commerce Comet," as he was later known, played for the Commerce High School baseball team after the Mantle family moved to town when he was four.
