    Description

    1986 Mickey Mantle Old Timers' Game Worn Atlanta Crackers Jersey. First surfacing in the collecting hobby in the historic 1997 "Greer Johnson Collection" of Mickey Mantle memorabilia sold by the Yankee legend's business and romantic partner, this genuine Mantle gamer is one of his last worn in competition. While the uniform style may be a switch from the Bronx Bombers style worn throughout Mantle's active career and beyond, the number "7" on verso applied beneath an artfully fonted "Mantle" will still make the heart skip a beat. A white tackle twill "Atlanta" arcs gently across the black knit fabric of the chest. Lower left front tail is tagged "McAuliffe Uniform Corp [size] 44" with a "1986" year tag to the left and washing instructions label to the right. Wear is appropriately light for a single exhibition contest. Digit on verso is autographed in 9/10 blue sharpie. Included is a small (4.5x6") plaque making Mantle an honorary member of the Atlanta Crackers Hall of Fame. Letter of provenance from Greer Johnson. Full LOA from PSA/DNA (Mantle autograph). Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
