The raw kid from Oklahoma struggled for a spell in his debut season, but after a trip to the minors and some harsh words from a demanding father, Mickey Mantle made it big on the biggest stage in American sports. This photograph depicts Mantle during that 1951 rookie campaign and is signed by its Hall of Fame subject. Framed to 23-3/8 x 27-3/8”, a 16x20” black-and-white photograph is signed by Mantle in black marker (“8-9” strength). Accompanying is a full photo LOA from JSA.
