1953 Photograph of young slugger Mickey Mantle from the New York Yankees showing off his hurt knee to Yankees scout Tom Greenwade in the club offices at Yankee Stadium. A hopeful caption on the back notes that the knee would be "fixed" but history would tell us this would ail the superstar his entire career. A cool image of a fresh faced Mantle from early in his career. The image presents well with some artistic tracing done for publication and a bit of a curl but in nice shape overall.
