    Description

    1964-67 Mickey Mantle Game Used Bat. A key part of the Mick's arsenal from the late 1950's to the mid-1960's, the Adirondack 133A appears here in its most desirable format, drenched with hard-slugging use in the form of multiple ball strikes, cleat marks, pine tar and a repaired handle crack. It's the identical style the Mick is wielding on his 1965 Topps card, the black lettered version of the northern white ash weapon that helped carry the Yankee legend down the home straightaway toward his career home run total of 536.

    The bat measures to the Mick's preferred thirty-five inches of length, and has dropped a few grams of weight from the "34 oz" weight denoted in barely visible handwritten vintage ink on the knob, typical of moisture loss over passing decades. For a generation of Baby Boomers, this is the ultimate symbol of childhood, a time of innocence when heroes could and did exist. Graded GU 7.5. LOA from PSA/DNA.
