Mickey Mantle's 1954 New York Yankee Panoramic Team Photo
Super clear and crisp b&w panoramic photo of the '54 Yankees lined up shoulder to shoulder at Yankee Stadium in front of a grandstand populated only by a few disintersted vendors. White lettering underneath the image reads "New York Yankees, 1954, Yankee Stadium, NYC" and on the left "Verna Photo, 37 Fifth Avenue, Brooklyn, NY." Among the notables, Casey Stengel in the middle looks not particularly happy, perhaps knowing '54 would be a struggle (the Bombers, despite winning 103 games, finished 2nd to the Indians), while a pubescent-looking Mickey Mantle is -- what else? -- 7th from the left next to the diminutive Phil Rizzuto. Others easily recognizable are Whitey Ford, Yogi Berra, Hank Bauer, Gil McDougald, Bill Skowron, Johnny Sain, etc. Photo 7 x 25" and appears NRMT, matted against a white backdrop on heavy stock. Some restoration to what were creases in the photo stock. Comes with a LOA from the Mantle Family.
