Large 1961 statuesque batting photo of the Yankee legend Mickey Mantle as he watches one sail into the seats. Caught in suspended animation forever, Mantle gazes proudly as yet another homer finds the seats! Taken from the height of his epic home run chase with Roger Maris, this comes from the New York Daily News and bears part of the original caption, but also a credit to their photographer Charles Payne! An exciting new UNIQUE discovery that has never been offered before and is sure to be the centerpiece of even the most extensive Mantle collection! Condition and quality are both outstanding with the shadows and quality making this a Hall of Fame worthy piece of photography!
