    Description

    1960 Mickey Mantle Game Used Bat, PSA/DNA GU 9.
    He claimed the American League single-season home run crown four times during his illustrious career, the last coming the season he instilled this Adirondack 89A with "outstanding use," as characterized by the experts at PSA/DNA. The most famous of his forty long balls during the 1960 campaign came on September 10th during a visit to Detroit, a left-handed smash that cleared the right-field roof of Tiger Stadium and was subsequently estimated to have traveled a distance of 643 feet.

    This thirty-five and a half inch (35.5"), thirty-two and a half ounce (32.6 oz.) war club exhibits multiple ball marks, cleat divots, rack streaks and a light coating of pine tar on the cracked handle. Two star shapes are stamped into the knob end for reasons unknown, invisible upon standard display.

    A letter of provenance from the son of Yankee Stadium television equipment operator attests that the bat was fished from a barrel of broken bats in the back of the Yankees dugout. Several copies of photographs picturing the consignor's father working at New York City ballparks are included. LOA from PSA/DNA, GU 9. Letter of provenance from son of WPIX television equipment operator.
