Default The Mick calls his shot !

Mantle breaks the Bambino's career World Series record of 15 home runs with his 16th in Series play. He did it in style...a "called shot" walk off homer in game 3 of the 1964 fall classic.

Mickey signed this insert poster for me after Roger had died; luckily I was able to get both of them to sign a lobby card from the same movie several years earlier.

This is one of only a couple known handwritten letters. Mick was not much of a letter-writer. I love the content of this piece. It really shows Mickey's softer side. Sorry the scan got cut off. I'll fix it when time permits.

They sure are. Nearly the oldest examples extant, too (I think the 1947 examples are the earliest that I know of).

No on the Red Heart Jodi. It's the image used on two of his toughest cards in the 1953 Dan Dee as previously mentioned and also Mick's 1953 Stahl Meyer.

I knew it was either the Red Heart or the Dan Dee Chips. It's been so long since I was involved with cards that I forgot which one it was! Either way, a classic image.

One of the roads that I've traveled as a collector is Hall of Fame induction class baseballs. I have most classes complete from the 80's on, but, with many deceased players from the 70's and earlier, it makes it tough to put together a class ball collection of the earlier years. I found this ball last year signed by Mickey and Whitey. Came with the original owner's polaroid photo from the day it was signed in Tennessee in 1974.

Despite being a die-hard Red Sox fan I've managed to tolerate this one in my collection for a while. I'm also the proud owner of a 1960 Topps Mantle that was locked inside an old tackle box for a number of years. Thanks to age and moisture it is now essentially adhered to the "protective" screwdown it was encased in. Can't find a scan of it though, which is probably for the better... it's really quite sad looking.

The hardest one of all the Mantle PM10s that I had to find (in nice condition) was the Yellow back ground one at the bottom. I believe in 1 3/4 size this is all the Mantles there are that arenot repro or fake.

Default The Mantle That Never Was

When I won this from a top end auction house last year I was pumped because I was going to have this framed with a really awsome pic of the Mick and what a conversation piece it would be.

I took it to get it authenticated at last year's National in Chicago and was heartbroken when it came back as unauthentic. I was given a refund right away from the auction house but this is one item that I really wanted.
