    Description

    1977 Mickey Mantle Game Worn New York Yankees Coach's Uniform. For the vast majority of collectors, the dream of owning a Mickey Mantle uniform from the Hall of Fame outfielder's playing career will remain just that--a dream. The vast majority of surviving examples are locked down in permanent collections, and the rare few that surface typically command astronomical prices. Here we present the perfect alternative, a genuine Yankee pinstripes with the immortal number "7" on the back, worn by Mantle during the first World Championship season in the Bronx since the Mick was in his prime.

    The uniform derives from the famous 2003 auction of Mantle's collection at Madison Square Garden, and is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by Mickey's widow and his two sons. The jersey provides the classic home Yankees style, with a navy tackle twill "NY" logo over the heart and Mantle's number "7" on verso. Proper "Wilson [size] 44" label appears at lower left exterior tail, and "Mantle 77 1" is embroidered on a white strip sewn into interior collar. The matching pants are tagged "Wilson [size] 36" at interior waistband, where a simple number "7" embroidered swatch resides. Light staining on the pants, apparently tobacco juice, causes no distraction.

    We believe we have matched the pinstriping to a Corbis.com image of Mickey joking with Yankees manager and former teammate Billy Martin at 1978 spring training, but invite interested bidders to make their own judgment. The image number is 42-26394300. Certificate of authenticity from the Mantle family. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
