The legend of Mickey Mantle has many aspects, but one of the greatest is the ball he hit at Yankee Stadium on May 22, 1963 against Kansas City. By all accounts, it was the hardest hit and longest homer of all time, with most conservative estimates putting it at 600 feet++. The offered image shows mantle in the locker room after the event and showing the bat and ball from the event. Mantle himself called it the hardest ball he ever hit! A rare piece of history from the most popular player of the era.
