In November 1993, about a year before Mickey passed away, my college roommate and I were fortunate enough to attend the "Mantle-Ford" fantasy camp in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Truly unforgettable, the priceless memories still linger. At the time , my high-school aged son was very concerned about his upcoming S.A.T.'s. During an autograph session, I was able to catch Mantle in an unexpected sympathetic moment as he inscribed: To Pete
Study Hard
Mickey Mantle
As my son reached adulthood, his passions and interests shifted from baseball, as the ball has been encased in it's protected cube for almost 18 years, looking as good as the day it was signed. Possibly a one of a kind piece of Mantle memorabilia, I could see this being a very unique scholastic inspiration for anyone with a son or grandson named Peter. Words of encouragement from the ultimate baseball demigod.
