Important 1967 photograph of the moment that Mickey Mantle blasted his 500th home run of his career into the seats, joining an exclusive club that would cement his legacy as one of the greatest players of all time. Issued by the United Press and stamped on the back with a full paper caption as well, this image captures Mantle at the apex of his follow through and with his eyes just starting to follow the flight of the ball and realize he had accomplished his goal. Encapsulated by PSA as a Type 1, this is the only example of this photograph we have ever seen, making it an important piece of baseball history that is being offered here for the first time ever!
