1959 Mickey Mantle All-Star Game Used Bat, PSA/DNA GU 8.5....
The grain of the barrel is slightly swelled from its punishment in the hands of the sport's premier slugger, and pock-marked with cleat marks suffered as Mantle knocked the clay from his spikes. Red bat rack streaking on the barrel may help indicate the stadium of usage.
While any Mantle bat carries considerable collecting appeal, those rare surviving specimens specially crafted for use in the Midsummer or Fall Classic are particularly prized by the discerning collector. This appeal is exponentially increased by the 1950's vintage, as game gear from the first half of Mantle's Hall of Fame career is considerably more scarce than 1960's models. LOA from PSA/DNA, GU 8.5.
