PRICE IS FIRM

This is a very rare signed photo of Mickey Mantle wearing a #6 jersey.


Mickey was originally assigned #6 since he was seen as the next in line for Yankee greatness after Babe Ruth (#3), Lou Gehrig (#4) and Joe DiMaggio (#5). After a slow start however, he was sent down to the minors. By the time he returned, Bobby Brown had returned from military service and with that, was given back the #6 he had worn for the previous four years. Mickey was given #7, previously worn that season by Cliff Mapes (traded to the Browns) and Bob Cerv (demoted), and he wore it for the rest of his fabulous career.
