1951 Mickey Mantle New York Yankees vs. Houston Buffaloes Exhibition Home Run Ticket Stub. The New York Yankees of 1951 was a team of transition. The Joe DiMaggio era was coming to its end. A blonde-haired, blue eyed youngster from Oklahoma was set to take the torch from Joltin' Joe. Things got to a rough start for The Mick as he struggled mightily. A trip to the minors, and chewing out from his father, proved to be the perfect tonic as Mantle came back and flourished his opening season. This ticket was issued for a Yankees and Houston Buffaloes exhibition contest April 8, 1951 at Buffalo Stadium. This game was just nine days before Mantle's first official game as a Yankee. The Yankees downed the Buffaloes 15-9 as a nineteen year old Mantle swatted a three-run homer in the fifth inning. DiMaggio added a little drama later with his own home run. This ticket is graded PSA 4 by the experts. We searched the archives and this is the only ticket from that game in a PSA holder. A recap of the game's story, through the eyes of a youngster, attends. Encapsulated by PSA, VG-EX 4.
