1955 Sweeping photograph of a dust-up at Yankee Stadium and showing Billy Martin appearing to go after Larry Doby of the Indians. Martin was well known to have a fiery temper and the man rushing in to help restrain his friend, as he probably had done at numerous bars and night clubs, is young Mickey Mantle! Issued by the International News and stamped on the back, this is believed to be from about 1955 and can not be any later than 1957 due to the stamp on back and Martin being traded after the season. Photo presents well with some glue residue on the corners that likely can be removed.
