When Detroit great Al Kaline was taunted by a youngster who said, "You're not half as good as Mickey Mantle," he replied, "Son, nobody is half as good as Mickey Mantle." Mantle was a multi-talented offensive threat. He drove in runs with enormous power from either side of the plate. He got on base by hitting well for average and drawing more than 100 walks in each of 10 seasons. And he scored runs with his excellent speed, stealing as many as 21 bases in a season (1959). Overall, he scored more runs than he drove in (1,677 to 1,509), a rarity among power hitters. Mantle's combination of personal accomplishments and team success throughout his 18 seasons as a New York Yankee, made him one of the most decorated and celebrated heros ever to don pinstripes. Dating from the early to middle portion of his career, this Hillerich & Bradsby model M110 Mickey Mantle professional model bat is uncracked and shows evidence of outstanding use. The barrel is covered with ball marks and ball stitch impressions. The model number (M110) is stamped into the knob. Measuring 35 inches and weighing 33.7 ounces, it shows ideal usage characteristics for Mantle while retaining superb display quality. Mantle added his signature to the right barrel in black marker.  LOA from John Taube of PSA/DNA (Graded GU8).
