Mickey Mantle was such a highly touted rookie that on April 12, 1951 (a week before he made his major league debut) a photographer from the Associated Press took a trip all the way to Pitcher, Oklahoma to take a photo of his girlfriend (and future wife) as she worked in a bank! An early and really cool piece of Mantle memorabilia, this is quite an interesting piece as it pictures the now famous Merlyn Mantle as a young 19 year old bank teller! Photo has some wear but it is exceptionally rare!
