1961 Statuesque batting photo of the Yankee legend Mickey Mantle as he watches one sail into the seats. His muscles bulging but his follow through caught in suspended animation forever, Mantle grits his teeth as yet another homer finds the seats! Taken from the height of his epic home run chase with Roger Maris, this comes from the Detroit News and photographer Drayton Holcomb! An exciting unique image, the quality is outstanding with a small chip on the lower border. Photo comes pre-certified by PSA as a "Type 1" and has a full letter.
