Original April 11, 1951 photograph of young Mickey Mantle from the New York Yankees as he waits in line to have his chest x-rayed as part of his exam to determine his military status. Exactly one week later he would make his debut for the Yankees and start one of the greatest careers in baseball history. A fantastic rarity that was just discovered and offered here for the first time ever out of a newspaper archive, this is being offered here for the first time ever! Condition is nice overall with some minimal handling wear.
