1953 Large photograph of young Hall of Famer Mickey Mantle from the New York Yankees as he poses with teammate Billy Martin as the pair looks over the ball Mantle had hit the day before for a 565 foot homer at Griffith Park in Washington. A tremendous image with a long and detailed handwritten note on the back, this appears to be vintage to the 1950's and has mention of Mantle chasing a "triple crown" so the image at least dates to 1956, but this could be a 1953 image with the handwritten note just added in 1956. An oversized work of art that we have never seen in original form before!
