    Mickey Mantle Signed "First Hit" Photograph Sequence. Die-hard backers of the New York Yankees will know that the iconic jersey number "7" that the Commerce Comet Mickey Mantle made so famous from his days in Yankee pinstripes was not indeed the Hall of Famer's original numeral. When he made his debut in 1951 he wore "6," forced to wait as Cliff Mapes and Bob Cerv played donning the "7" until it became available. Here we offer an action sequence of photos that shows his first major league hit -- an elegant cut taken from the right side of the plate. Attractively matted against a Yankee pinstripe background and framed to final dimensions of 18x31". A sure hit for serious fans of the Mick. LOA from PSA/DNA.
