For 1950s kids confined to the back yard – or perhaps those who could not round up enough pals to hit the sandlot – this 1950s “Mickey Mantle’s Four-Bagger” game was a welcome substitute for actual baseball. A rare and well-maintained survivor, the keepsake features a thick and sturdy cardboard facing on which a 1951 image of Mantle was enough to wrest the attention of any red-blooded 1950s American kid. Affixed to a wooden frame of 22x34”, the aforementioned “playing board” features four 7”-diameter holes in which plastic bags serve as receptacles for balls aimed at designated targets for “DOUBLE” (300 points), “TRIPLE” (500 points), “HOME RUN” (1000 points) and “SINGLE” (100 points). The original instruction sheet is mounted to the reverse. While the original balls and mounting poles are not included, the vintage novelty is in fine shape with only minor edge fissures and surface marks from hours of play in worship of the “Commerce Comet.”
