    1950's-70's Mickey Mantle's Personal Tackle Box with Contents. Despite eighteen seasons of service to the Big Apple, the Oklahoma-born "Commerce Comet" remained a country boy at heart, so this personal tackle box survives as a fitting memento. The rather large (10x12x18") metal box still contains a few dozen lures and various fishing gear, even some jarred ancient pork rinds still suspended in its fluid. This lot was originally auctioned as lot 262 in the December 2005 Sotheby's auction of the Mantle estate, and a photocopy of the catalog page picturing the box is included. The Sotheby's lot tag remains attached to the handle as well. Signed photos and baseballs are great, but you're unlikely to come upon another Mantle tackle box in this hobby lifetime.
