Description



When the Mick was pressured to take a pay cut for the 1959 Yankees season, he coolly replied that he'd be happy to run his Dallas bowling alley instead of reporting to the team. This artifact from the short-lived business venture is notable because all the other surviving examples were made by Wellington Balboa, whereas the manufacturer's stamping here is for Rolex! Mantle's facsimile signature is engraved on the reverse. Fully operable EX-MT condition.
