Having grown up not far from Yankee Stadium in the 50s and 60s, as I look back it somehow seems that Sundays were always doubleheaders against either the Senators or the Tigers. My mother sewed my idol's number 7 on my shirts and I still can picture his powerful swing, unique elbows up home run trot and, of course, the monster blasts into the seats. This pic is for fun only as I have no intention of selling my Mickey Mantle items. This one is very special as The Mick as nice enough to sign it for me after he had first been hospitalized and had appeared on The Today Show to tell his story.
