1951 International News photograph of ROOKIE Mickey Mantle as he makes a stunning catch in uniform with the Yankees. Stamped on the back and dated (Jan the next year) this is one of the only fielding action photos known to exist of Mantle from his rookie season with the Bronx Bombers. Photo has some creasing and wear, but it presents better than the technical grade. Offered here for the first time ever, fresh out of a newspaper archive!
