Default O/T Who is this with Mickey?

I received a pleasant email asking for help identifying who this is with the Mick. Anyone know? Thanks in advance.

From his outfit I would guess that he is a process server, who seems to reassuring Mickey that the suit he is holding is garbage.

Some sellers on eBay would claim it's Joe Jackson.

The noggin-topper on Mickey's friend is the type commonly worn in the 1920's, and thus of course it is Joe Jackson, because his last year in the majors was 1920.

I think that’s 1985 when Mantle did a little broadcasting. Could be a chance encounter or someone associated. Keep diggin. He may have looked a bit older in 85 - but the rest of the set fits.

I think you're right, John. I'll bet any number of 'executive producer' types were jumping at the chance to get a pic with the Mick.

Not spelling; Looks more like Fran Gorshen's brother. Perfect teeth, dapper - someone in show biz is my guess, too.

Willie the Shoe? I'm sticking with that guess. Mickey's almost as tall as he is while sitting. Plus I believe Mick was known to play the ponies!

That looks like the old SportsChannel logo on his jacket, he did broadcasting with them in the mid 80s

Looks a little like Ken Berry. Probably not him though.
