Description



Mickey Mantle who was sent down to the farm after struggling during his rookie season was recalled by the Yankees to help them down the stretch run. Presented is a glossy 8x10 original photo heralding Mick’s return to the Majors. Pictured with the youthful Mantle is the “Old Perfessor” Casey Stengel. The reverse side is stamped with a UPI photo credit and there is also a news blurb attached which is dated 8/25/51. The photo is clear and sharp with bright white borders and only minor signs of wear confined to the periphery in no way affecting the candid image.
