Incredible and artistic 1967 photograph of Mickey Mantle as he contemplates his future in baseball as he watches his best friend, Whitey Ford, say goodbye to the fans at Yankee Stadium. A bold and attractive work of art, this purposefully captures Mantle in a thoughtful pose as he watches Ford retire, knowing that it would be his decision next to hang up his cleats. We have seen this image before in print and reproduced online, but never in original form until now. Stamped on the back by the New York Daily News and in great shape, this is a Hall of Fame-worthy relic from the biggest star in baseball during the post-war era!
